once the produce is cut it starts to die/wilt without roots to provide the nutrients the produce cannot stay healthy for very long that's why there is such a short shelf life, some things are radiated to slow this but it still happens. the brown because it is literally starting to decay most things turn brown or black once started to decay, somethings like bananas or peeled potatoes turn brown when their flesh is introduced to oxygen for a period of time this is oxygenation it is an effect caused not by decomposition but by the air and really only affects the aesthetic appeal not really the nutritional value.
