In the United States found creepy “Ghost apples»

Perhaps gardeners from the Midwest of the United States and would like to forget the brutal winter of 2018-2019, but nature itself does not allow them to do it. The polar vortex and unusual frosts left, but left behind, as a reminder, an ominous miracle of nature…

In the United States found creepy “Ghost apples»
On the last surviving fruit trees at the sunset of winter suddenly grew icy fruit. They are very similar to the real apples and pears, but completely empty inside and ominously ringing when touched.

Old-timers from the American hinterland argue – some argue that they have already seen this in their lifetime, others call them storytellers. Alas, to check the veracity of the words of farmers is extremely difficult, because there in America, where apples grow, there are no Arctic frosts. And vice versa. So you have to believe a word Andrew SetTime, the gardener, who collected the most “ghostly apples.” And start from the facts known to science.Fabulous apples
Andrew does not hide – he was extremely lucky, because in the autumn too lazy to collect the entire crop and left hanging on the branches of some apples. The neighbors trees were empty when I came in cold, so they did “not grown up” again. His apples hung to the last, already frozen through, rotten, they did not fall only because in recent weeks constantly there were ice rains because of what trees and fruit on them were covered with a crust of ice. Very strong crust, it should be noted.

Apples hung to the last, already frozen through
When the first thaw in the morning Andrew went into the garden, he began to knock the ice from the trees, so that he did not break them with his weight. And after several blows the muffled sounds were replaced by a crystal chime. The fell and crashed those the most “Ghost apples”, ice toys with emptiness within. Suddenly, the gardener stopped and took a closer look – in some places similar apples were hanging, with a muddy slurry inside. He gently tapped the ice shell and its contents spilled out through the cracks.

It is known that the freezing temperature of apples below the water, so they can be stored in the cold. But after so long frosts, the flesh has long turned into jelly, and when the apples began to thaw during the thaw, and did become a slurry, which was enclosed inside a thick ice crust. And when it melted, the liquid poured out, leaving the ice shell empty. At least, this version of the origin of the ice “Ghost apples” is considered the most plausible. Do not believe in fairy tales about the tricks of evil forces?
