Anthracnose is a term that describes a group of fungal pathogens, causing similar symptoms in plants.
Anthracnose behaves similarly to fungal Rusts; it's worst during wet, humid weather. When the weather is dry, the spread of infection slows down significantly or even seems to disappear. However, returns once again following rain or humidity.
Anthracnose can impact a wide range of ornamental plants, vegetables, fruits and more commonly, trees. The main symptoms involve dark, sunken lesions (cankers) and water-soaked spots on the leaves, stems, flowers and fruits.
