Aloe Vera harvesting, why is my aloe green inside?

Zone Tucson | Anonymous added on October 15, 2019 | Answered

Hello I live in Arizona, I have a large natural cluster of aloe around my yard, they are not on a watering system. I have recently been watering them though. I recently went to harvest some from the large thicker green aloe and when I did it smelled pungent, was green inside (the gel), and did not breakdown well when scraped out, was very sticky not a healthy slimey clear texture. I’m wondering why it’s green inside and how to fix that so it’s usable. I have one potted aloe Vera on a watering system, it has the reddish coloring on the edges and the gel is clear and fine, but I don’t have much of it.
