About Penicillium expansum (GCA_000769735)


Penicillium expansum is one of the most prevalent post harvest rots that infects apples.

Although it is a major economical problem in apples, this plant pathogen can be isolated from a wide host range, including pears, strawberries, tomatoes, corn, and rice. This mold also produces the carcinogenic metabolite patulin, a neurotoxin that is harmful in apple juice and apple products.
