organic apples lose color after 3 days on kitchen counter

I've never seen apples fade in a few days after bringing them home and leaving out on the kitchen counter. I just started noticing this most recently. Anyone else noticing this?

I purchase organic, wash them and place in wire fruit bowl on kitchen counter. Never had this problem before. Purely cosmetic. But the skin color fades so much, it makes me suspicious. They look normal at first, then 3 days later they look grayish.

I don't know...sounds like that apple has been organic for a long time. I've never had that happen. Time to ask Snow White.

Mine get a little less bright but they don't necessarily change color.

thanks for your responses. maybe it's the lighting in my kitchen, and maybe it's my eyes, and maybe it was that supplier, and perhaps the farm which produced them has deteriorated soil. I don't know. it just seemed weird. bought more organic apples last night (different store, different brand)
