Ghost apple appearing in Michigan orchards

Local News

Widespread freezing hit Western Michigan this week, leaving behind something pretty cool in area orchards.

This is what’s being called a “Ghost Apple”.

Andrew Sietsema spotted the formation while pruning apple trees on Wednesday. Sietsema said the freezing rain coated rotten apples, creating a solid icy shell around them.

When he pruned the trees, many of the frozen apples fell off the trees, ice and all. However, a frew of them were left looking like what you see in the video.
