A niger is a fungus of the genus Aspergillus and is one of the most common aspergillus species. It cause black mold on some fruits and vegetables including grapes, onions, and peanuts. Some strains of A niger may produce mycotoxins called ochratoxins. If large amounts of A niger spores are inhaled, aspergillosis may occur, but is less likely than encounters involving other aspergillus species. Information from Wikipedia,, accessed 2007 03 14.
