Colonies may be slimy, smooth, round, and grayish in nature.

Broth cultures often have uniform turbidity but strains forming long chains tend to sediment. They require nutritionally rich media including complex growth factors and amino acids. They are fermentative and respiratory. Glucose is fermented mainly to lactic acid, ethanol mesenteroixes CO 2.

Unlike other gram-positive bacilli, Leuconostoc spp. Leuconostoc are found leuconsotoc plants and to a lesser extent in milk and milk products. Dextran-forming species occur on sugar cane and sugar beet where they may cause widespread spoilage.


Non-pathogenic to plants and animals, but Leuconostoc citreum and Leuconostoc pseudomesenteroides have been isolated from human sources. Wide spread spoilage of sugar cane and sugar beet plants has been noted, where dextran-forming species of Leuconostoc occur.
