Cedar Rust

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.
