Factsheet P16: Water core of apple & pear


This disorder occurs worldwide but is particularly prevalent in arid and semiarid regions, and in hot droughty summers in other regions. The name ‘water core’ is a misnomer because, except for a few cultivars, the disorder is usually manifested only in the fruit cortex just beneath the skin. It is also known as “glassiness” due to the glassy, almost wet appearance of the flesh.
