The Apple That’s One in a Million

Have you seen this awesome apple? A random genetic mutation caused this apple to have two colors, split perfectly in the middle. It turned up in the village of Colaton Raleigh, Devon UK where Mr Morrish, 72, who has been harvesting the apples from trees in his garden for 45 years, was picking a few apples for his sister-in-law. Mr Morrish said: “I couldn’t believe my eyes.

Thanks, Mother Nature, for a very cool surprise! Via Telegraph
