Anthracnose is a fungal disease infecting fruit-bearing plants, deciduous and evergreen trees. The infected plants tend to develop water-soaked, dark lesions around stems, fruits, or leaves.
The fungal disease affects aerial tissues, developing shoots, and expanding leaves of shrubs, trees, and other plants. It is the root cause of wilted, withered, and dying tissues. Hence, many people often confuse it with Fusarium wilt. Thus, a professional tree health assessment is crucial.
