Wound anthracnose is a disease of banana that is caused by a fungus, Colletotrichum musae, which infects the fruit in the field and stay quiescent until the fruit ripen. When the fruit are damaged, larger lesions develop while the fruit are still green. Anthracnose appear every year in the middle of the rainy season, mainly in low-altitude areas. In order to identify the factors which might explain variation in fruit susceptibility to wound anthracnose, a diagnostic survey was conducted in all of the soil and climatic conditions of Guadeloupe.
