Ken Morrish did a double-take when he grew a Golden Delicious apple split down the middle, one half was green and the other red.

When Ken Morrish picked this apple off a tree in his garden, he thought a prankster had painted half of it red.

But after inspecting it closely he realized that the remarkable split colors on the fruit were a natural phenomenon. And the bizarre apple turned Mr. Morrish into something of a celebrity in his village with scores of neighbors queuing up to take a photograph of it.

Experts say that the odds of finding an apple with such a perfect line between the green and the red are more than 1million to one.

This Golden Delicious apple seems to be having an identity crisis, split perfectly down the middle into red and green. Local horticulture experts are baffled by the specimen.

Horticulturists say the colorings on the apple are probably caused by a random genetic mutation.
