Virus-infected plants are stunted, often with poorly expanded leaves. Plants are bushy in appearance. Leaves may be mottled, and often have a “shoestring” appearance. Fruit are small and misshaped.

Aphids often are virus vectors, so an attempt to control the aphids is the first step. Eliminate weeds and remove infected plants from the field as soon as they are seen.
