‘Colossus 80’ southernpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp] has been released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Clemson University as a replacement for ‘Colossus’, a widely adapted and popular home garden and fresh-market cultivar that was released by Clemson University in 1972 (8). ‘Colossus 80’ is highly resistant to Cercospora leaf spot (CLS), a disease incited by Cercospora cruenta Sacc. (= Mycosphaerella cruenta Latham). CLS is one of the most serious foliage diseases of southernpeas in the southeastern United States and infection of susceptible cultivars results in premature defoliation and reduced yields. The original ‘Colossus’ is highly susceptible to this disease. Fery et al. (7) reported reductions of 36, 25, 10, and 3% in total seed yield, pod number, seed number per pod, and average weight per 100 seed, respectively, in a naturally infected ‘Colossus’ planting.
