Carolina Biologicals provides a lab exercise for students using
Penicillium italicum as a disease causing organism in oranges.  You
must provide your own oranges.  The kit comes with the mold, agar,
petri dishes, teasing pins and a few other items.  They also sell the
mold alone.

It is listed as "Koch's Postulates Study Kit"  order number CE-15-5801
It is probably listed in their online catalog.
