    Everything that's organically decomposing generates heat, it's part of the process and further accelerates the process.
  3. May I ask what prompted you to stick a themometer in an apple? Also you might want to try some vegetables too (I have always imagined a turnip would be relatively warm).
  4. You might have stumbled on cold fusion.
  5. did you use your rectal thermometer ?

    could also be the pressure of shoving a thermometer into an apple "squeezing" the base, thus causing the "mercury" (probably red colored water) to rise.
  7. right, friction. good call!
  8. Is that what the kids are calling it these days? :)
