Watermelon Fruit Blotch

Watermelon Fruit Blotch Disease is a serious disease that can be introduced to plants through watermelon seeds, transplants, or spread from other hosts. The disease affects watermelon plants and fruits and can lead to lost fruit production and reduced yields. When plants are infected, the disease most affects watermelons grown in high humidity areas, such as Florida and parts of the Southeastern United States. The disease is generally of more importance to large-scale growers and it is industry practice for waiver notification on large watermelon seed orders.
