I've always wondered this too....anyone?

The white coating is the natural yeast, same as on grapes, which is why they both ferment so nicely into sauerkraut and wine or are used to help make sourdough bread starter
ps - not the same as candida yeast

I've heard it called " bloom" and is on blueberries and other foods, too.
