Postharvest diseases produced by fungi are one of the main problems affecting the quality of agricultural products during storage. In citrus fruits, the largest economic losses are caused by wound pathogens, in particular, by Penicillium digitatum (PD), Penicillium italicum (PI) and Geotrichum citri-aurantii (GC), causing citrus green mould, blue mould and sour rot, respectively.
