Host Richard Hentschel talks about 2 important diseases on apple fruit trees and the ornamental flowering crabapples. Cedar Apple Rust has a decidious and evergreen hosts and travels between the two. Apple Scab only requires a decidous host. Both diseases impact the quality of fruit on the fruiting trees. Crabapples are also impacted, but we do not eat those fruits.
