[pic] Fungus? [pic]

howelbama(7 NJ)July 24, 2012


I posted this on the veggie forum, but did not get any feedback, so I thought here may be a better forum for this.

This is an image of one of the affected watermelon leaves, this is mostly occurring near the crown, though some leaves amongst the vines have some similar symptoms as well. Think it's fungal? Maybe insect damage? I do have some leafhoppers and a few bean beetles and cuke beetles here and there, but no major infestation.

Thanks for any ideas.

The older leaves don't live forever and eventually begin to go downhill. If it's only the older leaves that's normal. Mine don't look exactly like yours but are going bad. As long as there are plenty of healthy leaves the vine can still make good fruit.
