Microorganisms associated with the production of volatile organic compound in spoilt African horned cucumber have been isolated by standard plate count (SPC) and identified. The mean aerobic colony count observed for bacteria ranged from 3.3 to 8.3 x 107 CFU/g while those of fungi ranged from 4.0 x 103 to 1.1 x 104 CFU/g. The organisms isolated and identified included three species of bacteria (Bacillus lentus, Bacillus firmus and Paenibacillus alveii) while three of fungi (Rhizopus stolonifer… CONTINUE READING
