Incidence rates of bacterial canker, bacterial leaf spot and postharvest fruit rot on the Korean yellow-fleshed kiwifruit cv. Haegeum were compared with those on the most popular green-fleshed kiwifruit cv. Hayward grown in several naturally infected kiwifruit orchards in 2013 and 2014. The percentages of diseased leaves caused by bacterial canker were 18.5% and 17.3% on Hayward in 2013 and 2014, but those on Haegeum were 1.2% and 0%, respectively. The percentages of diseased leaves caused by bacterial leaf spot on Hayward were 63.5% and 16.2% in 2013 and 2014, respectively, but no bacterial leaf spots were observed on Haegeum in both years. The average percentages of diseased fruits caused by postharvest fruit rot were 24.2% and 20.5% on Hayward in 2013 and 2014, while 6.3% and 4.4% and Haegeum, respectively. Botryosphaeria dothidea was turned out to be the major pathogen of postharvest fruit rot on both cultivars.
