Anthracnose is a general name given to diseases caused by a group of fungal pathogens in the genus Colletotrichum. These pathogens affect a wide range of plants, including fruit crops, trees, turfgrass, and vegetable crops.

Symptoms of anthracnose on blueberry occur on leaves, twigs, canes, blossoms, and fruit.
