“Ghost Apples” Appear After Ice Storm in West Michigan
Widespread freezing hit much of Michigan this week, leaving behind something pretty cool in orchards.
It’s what’s being called a “Ghost apple.”
Andrew Sietsema spotted the formation in Kent County, while pruning apple trees on Wednesday.
Sietsema told WOOD-TV that the freezing rain coated rotten apples, creating a solid icy shell around them.
Sietsema said when he pruned the trees, many of the frozen apples fell off the trees, ice and all.
However, a few of them were left looking like what you see above.
