Pepper Disease Abbreviations

Selecting the best varieties of vegetables to grow each year should include not only flavor, yield, and growth habit, but also disease resistance. Disease resistant varieties will suffer less damage from diseases than plants with no resistance. Find resistant varieties for issues you have had in your garden or those that are common in your region. Your local Extension office is a great resource for more information.
