Hey All

I am considering planting a Kampong as it's about the only Spring variety available.  I have heard it's a Scab magnet tho and my only concern is whether it can cause increased scab in other unaffected avocado trees if planted next to them in a dooryard situation? 

Thanks
Blessed be the man who plants a tree knowing he will never live to enjoy it's fruit or shade.
