Rhizopus stolonifer is a very common mold that occurs on fruits, vegetables, breads and many others food items. It can be found on the farm, in the garden, in the fruit bowl or on leftovers from our refrigerators. It is also known as the bread mold as it is frequently found there happily consuming our bagels and breads.or the pin mold because the small roundish spore masses looks like pin heads. In immunocompromised individuals it is capable of causing a dangerous opportunistic infection (zygomycosis). Here we see it making strawberry sauce out of a trio of strawberries.
