Has anyone ever eaten an apple with a moldy core?

Asked by Time2 (128 points ) April 9th, 2011

Recently I was eating an apple and noticed that the core looked black. I cut it open and there was mold growing in the seed cavity. The rest of the apple was fine (though it was a little dry). I don’t know how it was stored. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Is it dangerous?

Yes, I’ve experienced that. While it was gross, I’ve lived to tell the tale more than once. Come to think of it, maybe that is why I now cut apples up instead of biting into a whole one.

You’ll be fine. I’ve done it before. Just watch what you’re eating before you put it in your mouth!

Yep. Just don’t eat the mold

I may have. I eat a lot of apples, and sometimes I notice one getting brownish or “less than clean white” where I expect perfectly white flesh. (And I’m not talking about how the apple will brown when left exposed to air for more than a few minutes.)

When I see that happening, I don’t eat any “deeper” into that apple, but I’ll continue to eat to the same depth all around, and throw out a fatter core than normal. So those may have been moldy cores, too, for all I know. I just don’t go deep enough to find out.
