Objectives: Plant-infecting viruses remain a serious challenge towards achieving food security worldwide. Cucurbits, in Zimbabwe, like in the other parts of the world, are used in various ways. A small-scaled cucurbit virus survey was conducted in Zimbabwe during the 2014 and 2015 growing seasons. Cucurbit leaf samples displaying virus-like symptoms were collected and stored until analysis. The samples were then subjected to next-generation sequencing (NGS). The data generated from NGS were analysed using genomics technologies. Zucchini shoestring virus (ZSSV), a cucurbit-infecting potyvirus previously described in South Africa was one of the viruses identified. The genomes of three ZSSV isolates from Zimbabwe are described in this note. Results: The three ZSSV isolates had the same genome size of 10297 bp excluding the polyA tail with a 43% GC content. The large open reading frame (ORF) was found at positions 69 to 10106 on the genome and encodes a 3345 amino acids long polyprotein which had the same cleavage site sequences as those described on the South African isolates except for the P1-pro site. The smaller ORF, also called the pretty interesting Potyviridae ORF, was located at positions 3611 to 3793 on the genomes for all three ZSSV isolates.
