Resumen
Inglés Español
Extracts from Habanero, Serrano and bell pepper (Capsicum annuum) varieties were evaluated for its natural antimicrobial compounds on growth of the phytopathogenic bacterium Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora. Bacterial suspensions were prepared and inoculated into culture media on which sterile filter paper discs saturated with the extract were placed. Growth of the microorganism was inhibited by extracts from the three varieties and by some of the compounds found in the extracts, like meta-coumaric and trans-cinnamic acids. Capsaicin and dihydrocapsaicin did not affect the growth of the bacterium.
