I am getting different opinions of fire blight resistance on asian pears. Real world experience? We are definitely in the fire blight zone. "D"

D, I have both Chojuro and Olympic varieties. For what it's worth, neither has shown any signs of getting fire blight, even when I was having some problems on nearby apple trees. My personal opinion is that Asian pears are about as hearty, disease and insect resistant as one could ever hope for.
