    browning on freshly cut apples is NOT bacterial, it is oxidation of some substance found in apples, pears and bananas (maybe some other fruit too). 'Coating' the cut surfaces with lemon juice does prevent it, but if they are going to be in the freezer within a few mins of cutting, maybe it doesn't have time to happen?
    Flowers come in too many colours to see the world in black-and-white.

    The brown colour is rust, very similar to what you find on metal.
