Utilization of raffinose as well as a mixture of its hydrolytic products (D-glucose, D-fructose and D-galactose, 1:1:1) by Drechslera australiense (Bugn.) Subram. and Jain and Curvularia tuberculata Jain isolated from diseased fruits (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) and guava (Psidium guajava L.), respectively, was studied chromatographically. Both the organisms utilized raffinose through a hydrolytic pathway. The dry weights of both the organisms were superior on a mixture containing the hydrolytic products of raffinose than on raffinose alone. Glucose was used earlier by the organisms from the mixture of D-glucose, D-fructose and D-galactose.
