Author(s) Patricia S. McManus.
Cranberry false blossom results in yield loss by causing flowers to abort in the year that symptoms appear and by reducing or eliminating bloom in subsequent years. Infected vines do not recover; once infected, they remain diseased and do not bear fruit. This fact sheet provides tips to diagnose and manage the spread of cranberry false blossom (4 pages; 2019).
