Botrytis - find out more on the Portal 

The species name Botrytis cinerea is derived from the Latin for "grapes like ashes"; although poetic, the "grapes" refers to the bunching of the fungal spores on their conidiophores, and "ashes" just refers to the greyish colour of the spores en masse. Thanks to Wikipedia.

To find out more about botrytis, the research report "Managing Pathogen Resistance in Summerfruit" funded by MPI's SFF, Summerfruit NZ and Kraft-Wattie's (2016-2019), is available on the Summerfruit NZ Portal under Main Menu/Research/Projects
