Fer·men·ta·tion starts the second the apples plucked from the apple tree.

Fermentation is the chemical breakdown of a substance by bacteria, yeasts, or other microorganisms, typically involving effervescence and the giving off of heat.

In the short term this sweetens fruits as their natural sugars breakdown. Overtime this is also why it ramps up the decomposing process.
