Mycosphaerella melonis is a fungus that infects cucurbits. It harms all parts of the plant besides the roots and in all stages of plant development. We focus on the fruit infection that causes internal rot to cucumbers which is not visible on the outside during in the early stage. The infected cucumbers could infect the healthy fruits. During sorting, the contaminated cucumbers are difficult to recognize, even by experienced personnel.
