In Tennessee, our warm and humid climate can lead to disease challenges in growing tree fruit. Therefore, it is important to be aware of disease resistances in common cultivars and select cultivars that are resistant or tolerant to as many of the common diseases we see as possible. This publication comes from Purdue (Indiana), and has a listing of many common cultivars with their disease resistances to assist in selection.
