These are known as "Ghost Apples" They are created when freezing rain coats rotting apples, and when the mushy rotten apple falls out, it leaves a shell of ice. New to meóand I think theyíre gorgeous. Have you ever seen them?

I grew up on a farm with apple orchards so yep, I’ve seen them.

But they’re pretty neat and really beautiful.

Wow! They are gorgeous!

When I saw your title I thought it was going to be a case of you buying apples and not knowing what happened to them.

That is really neat! I love ice storms for the pretty pictures, but I'd rather skip the power outages and impromptu trips into the ditch.

They are beautiful. I thought by your title they were similar to ghost peppers as in spicy I have never seen or heard of ghost apples before.
