Owner's comments

Don't let anyone tell you Liberty is Fireblight immune. It is NOT. It normally won't kill the tree but it does get it. Also, do NOT put Liberty on any rootstock as vigorous as M. 7. Go for MM. 106 or smaller. It is far too vigorous for a strong soil and stock. I am going to chop all my Liberty down on M.7 and keep only my Liberty on G.16.
