Fire blight, caused by the bacterium Erwinia amylovora (Burrill) Winslow et al., is one of the most serious diseases of pear. The development of pear cultivars with a durable resistance is extremely important for effective control of fire blight and is a key objective of most pear breeding programs throughout the world. We phenotyped seedlings from the interspecific pear population PEAR3 (PremP003, P. × bretschneideri × P. communis) × ‘Moonglow’ (P. communis) for fire blight resistance at two… CONTINUE READING
