Abstract:
Postharvest soft rot was found on apples in a local market in Beijing, China. Based on the morphological characteristics and molecular analyses of the ITS rDNA regions and Elongation factor alfa-1 (EFl-α) gene, the causal fungus was identified as Rhizopus oryzae. This is the first report of Rhizopus-associated with soft rot on apple fruit in China.
