COLUMN: Cedar-apple rust cycle begins

-A A +A
By Jeneen Wiche

Predictions for this season include a high incidence of both fire blight and cedar apple rust.  The signs of fire blight (scorched-looking foliage and stem tips) are rather boring compared to the freaky looking appendages that “ripen” with cedar-apple rust.  Get ready to start seeing large, orange gelatinous spore horns hanging from cedars like they are decorated with Japanese lanterns.  They strike awe and dread from me because they are fabulous looking creations of nature but they also forewarn a rust problem in the orchard for next year.
