Caption

Mouldy peach. View of mould growing on the surface of a peach (Prunus persica). Mould is the fuzzy, cobweb-like growth produced on organic matter by several different types of fungi. The moulds here began as microscopic, airborne spores. On contact with the moist surface of the peach they germinated. It then rapidly spreads, forming the mycelium which is made up of fine networks of filaments (hyphae). Root- like rhizoids (unseen) penetrate downwards into the food, secreting enzymes and absorbing water and sugars.
