Description: Late blight can be devastating to fruits, stems
and leaves when weather conditions are favorable (long
periods of muggy weather with cool nights and moderately
warm days). Affected plants look as if they were killed
by frost. Both green and ripe fruits become corky brown
on their surfaces and develop a texture resembling that
of an orange peel. The rotten areas remain firm but
make the fruit inedible.

when disease first appears, and repeat at 7-10 day intervals
until weather conditions are no longer favorable. If
late blight is an annual problem, begin spraying at
transplant time and continue through harvest.
