A Monilinia fructigena-like isolate (UFT) was collected from apple shoots in northeastern Hungary (Újfehértó). Brownish dieback and buff-coloured stromata were observed on shoots and small fruits of cv. ‘Ashton Bitter’. On potato dextrose agar (PDA) the colonies were yellowish in colour and irregular black stromatal crusts occurred. Conidia (16.6 × 10.1 µm) were slightly smaller than the average of M. fructigena. The fungus caused brown rot on inoculated apple fruits, and produced numerous… CONTINUE READING
