Plant DiseasesSometimes diseases cause the foliage of cucumber plants to shrivel and die. Bacterial wilt, powdery and downy mildew all affect the foliage of the plants. Anthracnose, leaf spot and blight can all cause the foliage of cucumber plants to turn brown and-die.

Why are my cucumbers turning yellow and dying? When cucumbers become over ripe, their green coloring produced from chlorophyll begins to fade, resulting in a yellowing pigment. Cucumbers become bitter with size and yellow cucumbers are generally not fit for consumption. A yellow cucumber canalso be the result of a virus, too much water, or a nutrient imbalance.

What can kill cucumber plants? The beetles usually won't kill large cucumber plants, although leaf damage may look severe. However, they can-spread wilt diseases and mosaic virus to plants. Control the beetles with an insecticide, such as carbaryl. Whiteflies also attack cucumber plants.
