Amy spotted these discolorations on a ready fruit and she thought that it might be mold fungus. It was really scary because this one was in a jar with 49 other fruit. The fungus could easily spread to the rest.

I took a good one and this one to the farmers’ market and discussed it with two Japanese ladies that Amy buys mushrooms and yams from. They marveled at the sugar coating and said that it was what I suspected: moisture discoloration.

I gifted them the two fruit and they ate it immediately and were thankful.

At home, I went into full investigative mode. With a knife, I noticed that the spot came off really easy. Underneath was beautiful.
