rubinette and scab...???

I am finding the info on rubinette split regarding it's level of susceptibilty to scab.

Many references to it being developed for scab resistance and being a favorite of organic growers in Europe.
Many also saying it is a hard tree to grow and notably susceptible to scab and powdery mildew.

Personal observations on this appreciated.

RE: rubinette and scab...???

Rob, I have a rubinette tree. I have not found them to be hard to grow at all. I have not had a problem with scab, but that may be due to a shot of immunox after petal fall. My tree has gone biennial, which would be my only complaint. This was the "on" year and we enjoyed a couple of bushels of these wonderful apples. So far I have bagged most of them, so that is another factor to consider. I hope this helps. Happy growing, Ted
