Orange looking growth

Asked January 2, 2015, 2:29 PM EST

A shop bought apple was found to have a growth on the inside that resembled the texture and formation of orange segments. Would you be able to explain this please?

No I cannot explain. Citrus fruit such as oranges have a unique structure with the juice vesicles, unlike apples and other members of the rose family which have fleshy fruit. I must admit I cannot even imagine what you are trying to describe, but I have never seen anything like that and I have cut thousands of apples in my time.
