I'm not sure it's frost damage I think it showed before we had frost, I thought it might be Apple scald but don't know enough about this to be sure.

Does anyone know what is wrong with my apples, they have got these strange marks on the skin but are OK inside.

Also is there anything I can do about it.

Hi PP, acers were originally woodland plants so they prefere dappled shade wouldn't like cold winds, they can get wind burn.

also as you may have noticed my acer is planted in a pot, I'm on very alkaline soil here so although they prefere acidic soil and will grow OK in neutral they do not like alkaline. I can move mine around and will put it in a sheltered corner for the winter.

to check to see if I am right, because I might not be, have a close look at the stems. If I'm right they should be angled and have side growths on them like wings, hence the common name, they are quite distinctive.
