1. Make crosses combining homologs of resistance from b43-17 to develop the highest level of resistance possible. 2. Make crosses to pyramid powdery mildew resistance with PD resistance. 3. Develop Resistant Gene Analog (RGA) markers to facilitate marker assisted selection (MAS) for PD resistance. 4. Evaluate resistant selections in field production trials for commercial fruit quality.
