Author(s) L. D. Wells-Hansen, P. S. McManus.

Tobacco streak virus (TSV) is one of four viruses detected in cranberry to date. Irregularly shaped, indented lesions will appear on berries during the first year of infection, significantly decreasing average berry weight and fruit set. Though infected plants produce scarred, TSV-positive berries during the first year of inoculation, they produce unscarred (yet still TSV-positive) berries in following years.
