• Half green/half red apple •

Fruit grower Ken Morrish was left stunned when he found a golden delicious apple on his tree split exactly half green, half red down the middle.

The fruit’s striking coloring is thought to be the result of a random genetic mutation.

Experts believe that the odds of finding an apple with such a perfect line between the green and the red are more than a million to one.

In such cases, the red side usually tastes sweeter than the green side – because it has seen more sunshine during its growth.

This is known as a chimera where one of the first two cells has developed differently giving rise to one half of the apple being different.
