The story behind odd phenomenon of ‘ghost apples’

Freezing rain spawns icy 'ghost apples' in Michigan

"From the icy grip of the Arctic outbreak, to above average temperatures this week, which then lead to a day of freezing rain instead of the snow western MI is accustomed to", CNN meteorologist Judson Jones said.

The recent fluctuation in temperatures has led to some handsome scenery around West Michigan in between the ice and snow.

Andrew Sietsema photographed what he has dubbed "ghost apples" this week in West Michigan. As the apples pruned, Sietsema noticed that the mush drained out the bottom, and the "ghost apples" ice shells were left behind. But those that remained on the tree had the mush slip out the bottom, leaving a ghost apple. Most apples just fell off, ice and all. He later took to Facebook with photos of the glass-looking orbs, dubbing the icy creation "ghost apples". The area supplies 60 percent of Michigan's apples.

While a third wrote: "Morning, you're really opening yourselves up for real innuendo today with your 'love sausage". Since revealing the new shelf addition on Twitter, M&S customers have been fair impressed with the Love Sausage.

The apples are a variety called Jonagolds, one of Sietsema's favorites, he told CNN, adding, "but we'll call these 'Jonaghosts'".

A man pruning apple trees in an icy orchard in MI on Wednesday discovered a very odd phenomenon: ghost apples.
