apple skin

mr. b | Jan 18, 2005 01:24 PM

I just finished a discussion about the varying thicknesses of apple skin and am wondering if there is a scientific explanation behind the varying thickness of apple skins. Does anyone know? Is it based on when in the ripening cycle the apple is picked? Or are they bred that way to prevent bruising during shipping? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
