Mummy Berry in Blueberries

— Written By Keith Wood

Mummy berry is a plant disease caused by the fungus Monilinia vaccinii-corymbosi. This is the biggest problem blueberry growers in this area experience. The end result is mummies or infected berries that do not turn blue, but instead turn pale pink or salmon-colored and fall to the ground. This disease causes severe yield loss in blueberries. We are offering a Zoom webinar on August 11th starting at 9 a.m. about this disease. You will learn about cultural control methods and fungicide options. Registration via Eventbrite is required.
