Caption: Mouldy grape. Grey mould (Botrytis cinerea) growing on a grape (Vitis vinifera). Healthy grapes are seen around the diseased one. Grey mould of this type is among the most common mould of plants, and is a serious economic problem. It affects several types of crop, in particular tomatoes and other soft fruits, including strawberries, raspberries and grapes. It also affects stored crops such as onions, bulbs and tubers. Stored produce can be protected by heating, and then storage in a cool and dry environment. Living plants can be protected by the use of chemical fungicides, but the mould often develops a resistance to such measures.
