KENT COUNTY, MICHIGAN (KAIT/NBC News) - Freezing rain in Michigan created an unusual icy phenomenon called “ghost apples.”
The freezing rain coated rotting apples.
It formed a solid icy shell around them.
When the trees were pruned, the apples would shake, causing many of them to fall off, ice and all.
With a few of them, the mush slipped out of the bottom of the ice casing, leading to a “ghost apple.”
