Severe damage to watermelon in Kyungbuk Province in Jun. 1987 was caused by a previously unreported disease. Small water-soaked spots on the leaves enlarged and coalesced, resulting in blight or scorch. Dark green spots on young fruits developed into holes in the pericarp and rotting of internal tissues. Infected tissues yielded isolates of a Gram-, nonfluorescent Pseudomonas sp.
