In this study Penicillium adametzioides was found to be the cause of postharvest rot of stored grapes (Vitis vinifera) in Pakistan. Infected fruit tissues were cultured on malt extract agar (MEA) and Czapek (Cz) medium at 25â—¦C.  The pathogen was identified as P.  adametzioides on  the  basis  of  morphological  and  molecular  characteristics. Pathogenicity tests conducted on healthy fruits under laboratory conditions showed typical rot symptoms after seven to fourteen days. This is the first report of post harvest rot of grapes caused by P. adametzioides in Pakistan.

Keywords: Grapes,Penicillium adametzioides,Rot, Morphology.
