Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, the causal agent of anthracnose, is one of the most destructive pathogens of sweet-passion fruit. Sunken and dark lesions are common symptoms found on the surface of infected fruits. Under humid conditions, acervuli containing masses of spores and dark setae are detected within lesions. The disease is controlled with fungicide spray and cultural practices (elimination of infected fruits and pruning diseased twigs and shoots during fall or winter).
