Penicillium expansum causes blue mould rot, a serious post-harvest disease of apples, and is the main producer of the mycotoxin patulin. The present study aimed to determine the influence of storage conditions (i.e. temperature and O(2) level) on growth and patulin production by different P. expansum strains on a simulation medium and on apples. Growth was strongly influenced by the temperature, while the used atmosphere (20, 3, and 1% O(2); <1% CO(2)) had no effect. Optimal growth was observed… CONTINUE READING
