Cedar rust... Apples can get it, I know that now... After planting a few pixie crunch apple trees and seeing all the leaves rust and fall off ! I have cedar trees all around me. There is no way in the world I can get away from them. SO, Here is my question.. What fruit trees will do well with all this cedar around ? I'm wanting to plant more slow food crops but this has me stumped. I noticed that a neighbor down the road has some blueberry bushes that do well so I planted some of those. We will see how they do. Any suggestions ?

There are varieties of apple - such as Enterprise - that are resistant to cedar rust. Also heirloom Arkansas Black.

Thanks Wayne, I'll try to find those varieties.
 
All of the following truths are shameless lies. But what about this tiny ad:
