Gram-positive rods, 1/1-2 µm, occurring singly, usually. Non-motile.
Colonies on modified MRS agar are white, convex, smooth with entire edges, 1.5 mm
in diameter after 3 days at 30 ºC. Facultative anaerobe. Grows at 15 ºC (optimally at
30 ºC). Weak growth at 10 ºC. Can grow at pH 5.0, 11.0 and in 6.5% NaCl. No growth
at 37 or 45 ºC.
Isolated from traditional pickle, in China. Positive tellurite tolerance.
