Late blooming or fireblight susceptible apple cultivars

Asked January 17, 2020, 8:39 AM EST

I am trying to find out information about late blooming or fireblight susceptible Apple cultivars. I am grafting many different heirloom and modern apple cultivars onto g11 rootstock.

I also am looking for bloom period charts for the various apple cultivars. I want to organize my plantings by bloom so I can reduce potential fireblight infections

I live in Myersville MD.

Frederick County Maryland

Here is a very thorough Apple Pollination Chart:

Here is our short list of recommended apple varieties, noting disease resistance: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/apples-selection-and-planting

Here is one list of fire blight resistant apples: https://apples.extension.org/table-of-apple-cultivar-fire-blight-susceptibility/
There are many others. You may want to look on the national extension website:
extension.org where there is much more information.
Go to Resources, then in the drop down box, click on Search Extension.
