A Close Look Into Ghost Apples, The Late Fall Phenomena

The closer we get into the winter months, the colder, and sometimes, unpredictable, weather changes, can leave us with a strange phenomena deemed as ghost apples, where apple orchards that still have fruit bearing trees get rained on late November into early December. The freezing temperatures then cause an icy casing around the top and middle of the apple. Because the texture of an apple turns to a mushy compound when it gets cold, the membrane almost becomes liquid-y and falls through the bottom of the ice, leaving a frozen, almost exoskeleton-like sculpture of the fruit that once lived there.
