Pear Scions from Corvallis Germplasm Repository

In a follow-up to a previous post, it sounds like the latest round of testing for xylella fastidiosa had good results, so the repository will resume shipment of pear scions, In January, to everywhere except for to the state of Oregon which requires 2 years of negative tests after a positive.


Great news. Hurray! Thanks for sharing.

wonderful news!!!


I wonder if the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa might have been around for awhile before it was detected. Glad they are back to shipping out scion wood again and they got this disease under control.
