white blister rust on purple sprouting broccoli

Post by gary » Fri May 05, 2017 5:02 pm

I noticed this last year on my purple sprouting broccoli but forgot to take a photo. It's only on a small part of the plants and only really appeared towards the end of the season with the broccoli flowering (at least that's when I noticed it).
Albugo candida ,not really a fungus at all but an Oomycete like Potato late blight nevertheless I thought I'd post it . I think it's interesting the way it changes the morphology of the plant presumably by affecting or mimicking plant hormones.
