The genus Erwinia belongs to the Enterobacteriaceae family and includes gram-negative, motile, facultatively anaerobic bacteria, which occur as pathogens, saprophytes or constituents of plant-associated epiphytic flora. The genus is characterised by strong heterogeneity. Erwinia rhapontici lives in association with rhubarb (Rheum rhaponticum) and causes crown rot. But the bacterium also appears on other plants (e.g. wheat). It is not known to have a pathogenic effect on humans.
