Heron, you have a first.  Never heard of that.  But let me ask, are all the apples in that storage bin the same way?  It may have something to do with the conditions of storage.  You might want to make some very detailed notes.  If you can replicate the event, you then have a chance of understanding what might have caused it.  Any compressed gas can cause a fizzing, including carbon dioxide.  So the question is, what is happening to the apple. What you really need is a curious high school student in need of a chemistry science project who would be willing to take a fizzy apple to the lab for testing.
