This is a 9 day, 12 hour time-lapse movie of a lemon being devoured by the fungus Penicillium digitatum. P. digitatum causes green mold, a common postharvest disease of citrus. This is the fungus you find in your fruit bowl… as you go to grab that juicy looking orange, your finger sinks into the soft rotten flesh not knowing Penicillium beat you to it. Images were taken at 15-minute intervals.
