AbstractA mosaic disease of papaya is reported; characterized by stunting, with accompanying reduction in size of internodes, leaves and petioles, oily spots on stem and petioles, marked mottling and distortion of leaves, uninterrupted latex flow, and dark-green to brown rings on fruits. The disease is transmitted by pin puncture, rubbing with carborundum and stem grafting. The similarities and differences in symptomatology between this disease and others of similar nature reported from other parts of the world, are presented. The disease is, however, believed to be closely related to, if not identical with, the mosaic type "B" from Cuba.
