Phytophthora of Cucurbits
Figure 14. Mature fruit of pumpkin varieties
producing fruit with hard, gourd-like rinds are less susceptible to Phytophthora
fruit rot (blight) than fruit with conventional (softer) rinds; however,
immature fruit are similarly susceptible because they all have soft rinds.
