Apples with disease and insect damage. Homeowner would like to know what's going on besides the insect damage. Apples are firm but half of them have a slimy center.

Stephanie: Part of the issue may be fungi and/or bacteria moving into the fruits through wounds created by insect. Also, some of the brown streaking may be a variation on bitter pit/cork spot. See http://labs.russell.wisc.edu/pddc/files/Fact_Sheets/FC_PDF/Bitter_Pit_and_Cork_Spot.pdf for details on this. Brian (:))
