Arctic Apples® have made a non browning apple. These apples are altered by scientists changing the way a gene is expressed. Scientists silence the 4 genes responsible for producing polyphenal oxidase, the enzyme responsible for causing the brown reaction.
Scientists that work for the arctic apples company created apples that don't turn brown hoping to encourage people to eat more of them. They argue that apple consumption has drastically decreased in past years. They also say that 40% of crops grown are wasted due to browning.
