The interaction of four bacteria causing pink disease of pineapple with several pineapple cultivars


The interaction of four bacteria causing pink disease of pineapple with several pineapple cultivars



Phytopathology 66(4): 396-399



ISSN/ISBN: 0031-949X

Four bacterial isolates representing three genera, Gluconobacter, Acetobacter and Enterobacter, caused pink disease of pineapple fruit. This disease is characterized by a dark-brown discoloration which develops in the fruit flesh during canning. The virulence of the isolates differed considerably in relation to the harvesting period, and isolate, but the Enterobacter type was the most virulent. Each genus exhibited slight differences in symptoms in uncooked fruit.
