Abstract

A severe postharvest rot of acerola fruits (cv. Kanmikei) was found in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan in 2017. A fungus frequently isolated from the diseased fruits was identified as Colletotrichum tropicale based on morphological, cultural characteristics and sequence similarity of ApMat and GS gene regions. The isolates reproduced the symptoms on acerola fruits after inoculation and were reisolated from the inoculated fruits. This is the first report of anthracnose on acerola fruit in Japan.
