Scab of Cucurbits
MetadataShow full item record
Zitter, Thomas A.
Although scab of slicing and pickling cucumbers is rare because of the availability of many resistant varieties, this disease can still be of significance for other cucurbits including summer and winter squash, true and other pumpkin types, muskmelon and cantaloupe, and gourds. This fungal disease can attack all parts of the plant, but is most damaging because of the unsightly scab lesions that develop on fruit, usually making them unmarketable.
