Spoilage of fruits and vegetables due to postharvest diseases is a serious economic problem world-wide, causing 10-30% losses in most crops, and up to 50% in more perishable produce such as tomatoes. Some postharvest diseases are simply an extension of diseases occurring in the field, but many are a result of infection of the fruit or other produce by a micro-organism after harvest. This article discusses some aspects of post-harvest diseases of fruits caused by fungi, and describes some simple experiments using citrus fruits.
