Is this Apple safe to eat?

Asked August 24, 2017, 12:40 AM EDT

What caused the spots? They aren't bruised. Is the apple still tasty? Will it be bitter? Bitter or brown rot? Will it taste normal?

We viewed your photo. Apples in general are susceptible to several types of summer rots and we cannot say for sure which one. Bitter pit would have deeper brown spots on the apple. This looks mostly superficial and it is okay to peel and eat.
