Susceptible on apple scab – Venturia inaequalis (Cke.) Wint. – were the varieties with Japanese origin (i.e. Fuji Aki-fu, Nebuta, Sekai ichi), and in certain years even well known cultivars, as Kaltherer Böhmer, Starkrimson, Red Delicious, Mutzu, Wellspur, Jersey Mac which were strongly infected, especially on leaves.
