I just tried 3 apples that I had never heard of before. None of them brown when cut open.

I picked up the "Opal" apple at a Trader Joe's; the "Kiku" and "Envy" apples at a regular supermarket.

My first thought was these must be GMO. But not according to the info online.

The Opal apple is a European hybrid, cross between a Golden Delicious and a Topaz.

The Kiku apple is a spontaneous, naturally-occurring variation of the Fuji apple.

The Envy apple is a cross between the Braeburn and the Royal Gala developed in New Zealand. It's about twice as expensive as the other two. Larger too.

All three are delicious, really delicious. I'm really fussy about apples. I don't normally buy apples this time of year. Fall is the best time.

Is this just old news to the rest of you here?

Dave Fruit apples? I've never heard of that.

I agree about the Asian pear -- very crisp & juicy. Love Love. Kind of expensive here though.

Wow, that is weird. Browning apples are a real problem if you're using apple slices for a fruit tray or just want to cut an apple in half and save the rest in the frig. Get's gross looking fast.

How long do you have to wait before the tree bears fruit?

I don't think those have much of a market not because they are GMOs but because not many people care.

Restaurants will like them for being able to prep dishes ahead of time and I read they may be ideal for clear juices. Still that's not that big of a market.

It is a Canadian firm that designed them.

Okay, wild guess here ... you live somewhere tropical.

I love every fruit you mentioned, except the dragonfruit. I've only had it once and it was beautiful to look at, but just tasteless, no fragrance either. Tell me I got a bad one. So what's a good one taste like?

Long term effects remain to be seen.
Like I said, I'll pass. At least until long term studies on humans are completed.

Can't blame you. GMO makes me uncomfortable too.

They can splice genes from one apple to another, picking and choosing which genes they want to splice, and it is not considered GMO and nothing has to be reported other than a name. You can splice a gene out of a watermellon to an apple and it is not GMO. These foods still aren't natural though. Our body creates enzymes to break things down based on triggers in the food we eat. Did these triggers get changed?

Asparaganes turn to acrylamides during the maliard reaction. People associate this to browning things. Now just sitting meat will darken, so will lettuce, the reaction deals with oxidation to some extent. Asparagines are calming foods. It is the same as eating caramels if they oxidize. Why would someone want to take the calming properties out of foods.

We are changing food chemistry way too fast, and the people doing this are not testing everything. They ignore the lost properties of the foods. In order to digest foods, we need to oxidize it. Slowing oxidation may not be that good of an idea.

It depends on apple how fast they brown. Some take really long time, some almost instantly. It's linked in acidity of apple, the more acidic, the slower it turns brown. Some apples are so acidic that you don't see browning at all.

Try putting lemon juice on the sliced apples.
I think there are a couple of other options too, but have never used them!

No it's not, just put the cut apples in a bath of Vitamin C for a few seconds and viola no browing. Simple.

Just like whole foods was caught lying about GMOs I think
these apples are GMO as well.

GMO apples

Whole foods knowingly selling monsanto corn
