Within a few moments of biting, cutting or bruising an apple, the fruit naturally begins to brown as oxygen is supplied to protect injured plant tissue—but the 'Arctic Golden Apple,' is a new kind of Golden Delicious from Okanagan Specialty Fruits that is described as "nonbrowning."

Some apples do seem to brown faster than others and this can be attributed to the enzyme levels and different compounds in each fruit. This new GMO fruit, which has been in development for more than 20 years, features less of the enzyme that causes browning. As Grub Street notes: "Unlike crops that were genetically modified to purportedly protect them from pests or increase crop yields, the Arctic Apple has been marketed as more convenient — they don’t brown after they’ve been sliced."
