RE: [nafex] Minie / Miney pears

The only cultivar of the Ottawa series that I have is Miney - and it is a
very youg graft, I didn't get fruit yet.
Also, I am very lucky not to have any fire blight at my location - I can't
report on varietal susceptibility however. I am not sure I would like to
make some artificial inoculations...

Failed tests, classes skipped, forgotten locker combinations.
