Aspergillus flavus Infection and Aflatoxin Production in Fig Fruits

By J. R. Buchanan, N. F. Sommer and R. J. Fortlage

Abstract

Immature fig fruits did not support colonization and aflatoxin production by Aspergillus flavus Lk. but became susceptible when ripe. While sun-drying on the tree, fruits were particularly vulnerable to fungal infection and colonization. Aflatoxin accumulation equaled levels frequently reported for such seeds as peanuts and cereal grains
