Feb 11th, 2019: Ghost Apples

Less filling, zero calories, keeps your la mode from melting, ghost apples from Michigan.

Andrew Sietsema was pruning apple trees in an icy orchard in western Michigan when he came across some. "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 (apples have a lower freezing point than water)," Sietsema told CNN.
"And when I pruned a tree it would be shaken in the process, and the mush would slip out of the bottom of the 'ghost apple.'"

You could probably find a lot of ghost apples right now in any orchard in what's known as the Ridge, a region near Sparta, Michigan, known for apple production.
"Most apples just fell off, ice and all. But quite a few would leave a cool "ghost apple" behind," Sietsema said.
"Jonagolds are one of my favorite apple varieties, but we'll call these 'Jonaghosts.'"

Color me skeptical

So am I. But I can't come up with how else it could happen.

Still skeptical though.

I suspect they're not nearly as round and whole as they look. I bet when the mushy apple drops out, you keep the top half, or the side half if it's growing at an angle, and you're pretty much looking at all the ice there is to look at in these photos.

You're right, the apple is gone, only the ice shell left. He probably looked at dozens, maybe hundreds to get two or three pictures that look like clear whole apples.
