    Default Passing a parameter of current object

    I have the following problem. I have two classes named apple and orange. In orange I have a function:

    functionX(Apple p){
    }

    public Apple() {
     
    functionX(????);
     
    }

    I'm wanting to know what goes in the question marks. I want to pass the current apple to functionX which is in the orange class. Help please

    The this variable is a reference to the current object.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
