oa Agricultural Journal of the Cape of Good Hope - The fusicladium disease of the pear and apple

Fusicladium causes the spotting of the Late Bloomer apple in many Eastern Province orchards and the shy-bearing of the Saffraan pear in the Western Province. Of late seasons, it has attracted considerable attention on Williams' Bon Chretien and other popular, high-priced pears, large quantities of these being distorted or disfigured by it.
