Green Mold ( This Is Part Of Nature )

Penicillium digitatum


This is part of Nature: White mycelium on the fruit surface, soon produces millions of olive green spores, that are easily dispersed, during handling. I went downstairs at 4:00 a.m. in the morning, to eat a tangerine. I picked one tangerine out of the fruit bowl, and this tangerine, had some damage to the peel. Some of these tangerines, have been in the fruit bowl, for over a week. What I saw: There was a white outer circle, and an olive green inner circle. The white outer circle, was one and one fourth of an inch high, and one and one half of an inch wide. The olive green inner circle, was seven eights of an inch high, and seven eights of an inch wide. My six photos, show the ( green mold ), very clearly.


I spotted this ( green mold ), on one of the tangerines, that has been sitting in the fruit bowl, for over a week.


Early in the morning, I took one tangerine, out of the fruit bowl. Some of these tangerines, have been in the fruit bowl, for over a week. The tangerine that I took out of the fruit bowl, was damaged by the ( green mold ). These words are all part of Nature: bacteria, decay, mushrooms, rot, fungus, spores, molds, yeasts, decomposition, etc. etc. The ( green mold ), is part of Nature.
