Stone fruits
Stone fruits (peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, and cherries) are all susceptible to brown rot caused by Monilia fructicola or the closely-related species Mon. fructigena and Mon. laxa. Brown rot colonises water-soaked spots on the fruit, which within 24 h, becomes brown enlarging and deepening, rapidly, then producing a dusting of pale brown conidia. The whole fruit may rot in 3–4 days. Transit rot, caused by Rhizopus stolonifer, becomes surrounded by a coarse and loose “nest” of mycelium. Penicillium expansum causes blue mould rot in cherries and plums. Befresh™ antifungal culture is specially designed to inhibit fungal rot in stone fruits.
