Gloeosporium sp., the causal organism of anthracnose is becoming widespread in France. In order to create new resistant varieties and to know better the biology of the fungus, several methods of contamination were compared on entire plants or excised organs. Results confirmed the susceptibility of berries. They also demonstrated an infectivity of roots, which is a new result. They point out the interest of petiole contamination to obtain measurable attacks.
