Excerpt from book: CHAPTER IV THE DECAY OF FRUIT; USEFUL MOLDS; MOLD DISEASES Of all food materials commonly found in the household none are so much injured by molds as fruits. Most pears, plums, and peaches decay rapidly; apples, oranges, and bananas keep somewhat longer, but it is a universal experience that none of our ordinary fruits can be kept for any considerable length of time without decaying (Fig. 21). Winter apples, with their solid flesh and their tough, smooth skin, can be kept for many months without rotting, and the thick skins of oranges and lemons protect them a long time. But thin-skinned fruits, like cherries or berries, can be kept only a comparatively few days. The decay of fruit is by no means always alike, and it is produced by a variety of causes. If one simply examinesdecaying apples, pears, lemons, and bananas, the difference in the character of the decay is quite evident both to the eye and to the smell. Bitter rot, black rot, and brown rot are three types produced by three different organisms. It is not within the scope of our study to describe the different kinds of decay which appear in common fruit. The causes may be numerous, but in the majority of the examples of decayed fruit the active agency, Fig. 21. An apple beginning to decay under the action of certain species of molds. Fig. 22. Manilla, a common species of mold causing fruit decay. at the start at least, is the growth of molds. In later stages of the decay bacteria may be concerned, but it is always molds that begin the process. There are a number of species of molds intimately associated with the decay of fruits. The common blue mold (Fig. 7) is one of the most widely distributed, but there are several others (Figs. 22, 23, 24). Method Of Infection And Distribution To understand th...
