Does this look like a virus

Postby redcrx » May 14, 2013 7:30 am

I have had Blueberry Muffins for a couple of years and it has looked nice. I noticed a leaf with some streaks. When I got a close-up of that leaf I noticed the streaks followed the vein. I'm going to test it later today.

It tested negative. Might be some frost damage.

Hi Ed,

If something like this appears on just one of the outer leaves I will wait to check how the newer leaves look. This did look odd and if you saw it on more leave it would have been more of a concern, but I'm sure you feel better with the negative test :)
