CYSDV, a "crinivirus" originally from the Middle East, was identified by Wintermantel and colleagues in the melon production regions of California, Arizona, and Sonora, Mexico, in the fall of 2006.
Melons from plants infected with CYSDV may appear normal but often have reduced sugarlevels, resulting in poor marketability.
Wintermantel and colleagues identified several local weeds and important alternate crops, such as alfalfa, lettuce, and snap beans, as hosts of CYSDV. They found that the virus is capable of infecting plants in seven plant families besides the Cucurbitaceae family.
