Part 2 Does mistletoe have favourite fruit varieties?

The Mistletoe League Project aims to collect information about mistletoe on fruit (especially apple) trees in the UK and Ireland. The project began in late 2011 and will run over at least two winters (the best time for documenting mistletoe) so it will be active until at least spring 2013.

This is Part 2,  a questionnaire about whether some fruit tree cultivars may be more susceptible, or resistant, to mistletoe.

[Parts 1a and 1b gather information on how mistletoe is treated on fruit trees - is it welcomed or seen as a nuisance? Is it managed or left untouched? Is it cropped commercially at all?  Part 2 gathers information on which fruit varieties seem most or least susceptible to mistletoe.  Part 3 collects general information on mistletoe sightings on other host trees (not necessarily fruit trees - limes, poplars, hawthorns and many other trees are also good hosts)]

This is Part 2, a questionnaire about whether some fruit tree cultivars may be more susceptible, or resistant, to mistletoe.

It is aimed at orchard owners and gardeners.  If you know the fruit varieties you have, and which tree is which, it would be useful - but do take part even if you're unsure.
