SWD Found in Cherries on the Eastern Shore of Maryland

Gordon Johnson, Extension Vegetable & Fruit Specialist; gcjohn@udel.edu

There has been another report of spotted wing drosophila (SWD) in cherries, this time from an orchard in Caroline County, Maryland. We have a number of berry crops and soft fruits currently ripening (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, early peaches) that may be at risk.
