White mold is a relatively easy fungal disease to identify as it produces white, fluffy, cottony mycelial growth on the outside of stems and on pods.

Other symptoms include:

  • Wilted leaves
  • Stems that appear “bleached”
  • Shredding of stem tissues and sclerotinia
  • Small black structures resembling mouse or rat droppings, can be found on and inside plants infected by white mold.
