Tomato contains a large amount of water which makes them more susceptible to spoilage by fungi. These fungi are detrimental to human health, this study was therefore carried out to isolate, characterize and identify the fungi species in spoiled tomatoes. Tomato fruits sold in different areas in Talata Mafara, Zamfara State Nigeria were used for this study. Pathogenic test results showed that Aspergillus Fumigatus had the highest decay diameter of 20mm in healthy tomato fruits while Aspergillus Flavus had the lowest decay diameter of 16mm. Proper handling and adequate storage, facilities must therefore be employed to prolong the shelf life of tomato fruits. ...
