Is it ok to eat an apple that has browned on the inside?

Asked by pleiades (6275 points ) 2 months ago

I grabbed some red delicious apples from a local store and I bought the most dark red ones for some reason. These apples are as huge as a 6’5 mans fist.

yes, if it is browned a little, it’ll just be a bit mushier than normal. But it won’t hurt you or make you sick.

It’s probably alright I guess, but why would you want to? Just return them and get fresh ones.

“Brown delicious” apples don’t sound like they would catch on.

When an apple is brown on the inside there is no danger in eating it, but it will not have as many vitamins as it had when it was fresh!

It may be unappealing, but it’s not unhealthy. You could eat an apple that was, in fact, wormy – and eat the worms, too – and be perfectly okay. I agree that it’s not a very appetizing thought, though.

I’m just surprised as hell to find that a 6’ 5” man (19.5 cm) man only has a fist as big as an apple.

Yes, it’s OK. May have been frozen at some point, so my grandmother told me.

It was meh as I expected it was going to be dry and sweet vs slight tangy crunchy juicy and sweet with a normal red delicious

I want to juice them but I feel there’s no more vitamin c in there..
