Orchardist, Andrew Sietsema, was pruning apple trees in an icy orchard in western Michigan when he came across what he calls ‘Ghost Apples’.

What caused these apples to look like that?

Freezing rain coated the rotting apples, creating a solid icy shell around them.

The rotting apples turned to mush and fell through the base of the icy shell leaving a ghost apple.

“I guess it was just cold enough that the ice covering the apple hadn’t melted yet, but it was warm enough that the apple inside turned to complete mush,” Andrew Sietsema said.
