Nota

By appearance, in oenology and botanics, we mean the growth of fungi and/or other diseases (e.g., mildew) on the fruit, stems and leaves of a plant, which may cause the death of the plant itself.
In this collocation, the word is mainly used in the singular form. 2

Contesto

The appearance of anthracnose on fruit, stems and leaves is not readily confused with black rot and other diseases. 3
