Default Hallertau Substitute

So I need a substitute for Hallertaur Herschbrucker. All the substitution charts say to use Mt Hood. I thought I had read that Hallertauer Mittelfruh was bred to replace Hallettauer Herschbrucker because it was prone to fungus. So is the Mittelfruh a suitable alternative?

I'd use Mittelfruh before Mt. Hood.
