[show]Goof (continuity error): Throughout the series, the way Ned's gift works contradicts itself. Most notably, his entire business is based around touching dead fruit to make it ripe again for use in his pies. When he touches the fruit, it is restored to its pristine physical shape.

Additionally, all vegetation is technically dead once it is removed from the root regardless of if it has begun to rot.
