Fungi Everywhere -6

Sample -6 is of fungi growing on black grapes. I spotted white cottony fungal growth on black grapes stored in refrigerator. Fungal growth on grapes may have developed due to rotting. I picked a sample from the rotting portion and fixed it on a slide to peep through the foldscopee. I could make out a criss-cross network of hyphae and some spores which on magnification were quite clearly marked. The fungi apparently appeared to be Aspergillus or Penicilium species.
