Lactobacillus plantarum, the cause of yeast spots on olives

Lactobacillus plantarum, the cause of yeast spots on olives

Microscopic and cultural study of the blemish of olives commonly known as "yeast spots" revealed the abnormality is caused by bacteria rather than by yeasts. The bacteria which could be isolated were identified as representatives of L. plantarum.
