Colletotrichum gloeosporioides is one of the most common Colletotrichum fungal plant pathogens. It causes bitter rot in variety of crops worldwide .Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, is the most widespread and serious postharvest disease of many fruits including mango, papaya, pitaya, coffee, eggplant, sweet pepper, and tomato,yam and avocado. yam, papaya, avocado, coffee, eggplant, sweet pepper, and tomatoThe most damaging phase of the disease begins as a quiescent infection, when the fruit is in the preclimacteric phase of development. Growth of the pathogen is resumed only after harvest when the fruit starts to ripen and postharvest anthracnose develops leading to significant decay losses during storage and marketing. The disease is traditionally controlled by synthetic chemical fungicides and hot water treatment, in the case of papaya and mango. However, when harvested fruits are treated with fungicides, there is greater likelihood of direct human exposure to them and of development of resistance in pathogens.
