Summary: ‘Cantaloupe’and ‘Piel de Sapo’are melon (Cucumis melo L.) varieties cultivated in Spain.

Disease incidence ranged from 10%(Alicante) to 45%(Valencia). Symptoms included yellowing and wilting of leaves, rotting at the stem base and upper root, and collapse of the entire plant. Samplings were conducted from severely decayed and dead plants. Fragments (0.5 to 1 cm) from rotted lower stems and roots were surface disinfected for 1 min in 1.5% NaOCl, washed twice with sterilized distilled water, and plated onto potato dextrose agar (PDA) with streptomycin sulfate (0.5 g/liter). Plates were incubated at 25 C in the dark for 3 to 5 days. Mycelia resembling Fusarium were isolated and characterized by morphological and …
