Anthracnose Fruit Rot
Symptoms: Symptoms appear on ripe and overripe berries. Ripe berries develop a soft, sunken area near the calyx (flower-end) of the berry. Masses of orange spores are visible on the sunken areas of the berry.
Disease: This fungus over- winters on live twigs, flower buds, dead twigs and debris on the ground. Spores are released during warm, wet weather, and spread by splashing rain onto blossoms and green berries. Infections on young berries remain latent until fruit ripening.
