A practicing Jewish friend of mine challenged me on the anecdote about worms in apples, and I couldn't Google an independent reference. Can anyone help me verify it?

It's easy to find thousands of discussions online for the somewhat different case of "worms" in fish. This is a good one, like many good ones, it's not exactly in English; I am not sure how clear the terms are from context, but your friend should know them.

Chabad has a total (a late one) ban on eating figs http://www.shturem.net/index.php?section=news&id=12572 due to the fact that its fruit is frequented by small worms which can not be distinguished from the fuit internals . The fact became known from biology and agriculture studies.
