Green mold is caused by the fungus Penicillium digitatum which is ubiquitous to all citrus growing regions. It is the most common and serious postharvest disease of citrus. The green mold induces the change of the flavonoid component distribution in citrus fruit. This studies on the role of these compounds in resistance to and on the resistance conferred by flavonoid in Citrus. It was confirmed by LC-MS/MS that as procedure of disease, while the content of hesperidin (HPD) increases, hesperetin (HPT) decreases. According to the literature Penicillium produces hesperidinase which hydrolyzes HPT to afford HPD.
