Chile peppers ( Capsicum sp.) are cultivated worldwide and are often prized for their heat ( Bosland and Votava, 2012 ). A widely used heat measurement for chile peppers is the SHU ( Scoville, 1912 ). This measurement is the highest dilution of a

crop seasons overlap by 4 to 8 weeks in the Pacific Northwest, resulting in a “green bridge” effect that facilitates movement of pathogens and pests among crops. This has contributed to the endemic presence of Xhc in this primary carrot seed
