Little Cherry Virus

Tuesday May 14, 2024


Little Cherry Virus causes small, discoloured cherries with a bitter taste that can not be marketed. With a history of this virus in British Columbia, and a current epidemic in Washington State, cherry growers should inform themselves of the transmission, symptoms, controls, and sampling practices. An article about Little Cherry can be found at the link below, on the BC Cherry Website.
