Mild leaf chlorosis and growth reduction occur in naturally infected commercial pepper cultivars (Capsicum spp.). Fruits are small, malformed, mottled, and sometimes develop necrotic depressed areas. Stunting is very severe in Capsicum spp. infected at early stages of growth. In field crops, infection may reach 100% and the yield of marketable fruits is drastically reduced.
