 Ghost Apple

A new unique apple variety from Zaiger Genetics, Ghost apple is in a category by itself. These white skinned, white flesh apples have a sweet sub-acid flavor. This is a heat-loving apple that ripens in early July. It needs a pollenizer such as Fuji, Gala, Granny Smith or Pink Lady.

What are 'ghost apples'? Record low temperatures create freaky phenomenon

Ghost apples can happen when ice casings of apples hang from a tree.

Nature is certainly capable of creating some pretty amazing things, and one resident of Sparta, Michigan, just happened to be in the right place at the right time to see one of the winter's most beautiful formations.

Last week, Andrew Sietsema was pruning some apple trees after freezing rain had hit the area and while he was working, he snapped a few pictures of what he has since dubbed “ghost apples” — hollowed-out ice casings of apples that were never harvested.

Sietsema, who manages a local orchard, told NBC affiliate WOOD-TV that the apples are of the Jonagold variety, "but we'll call these Jona-ghosts,” he said. He later told TODAY Food that he estimated the ice to be about 1/2-inch thick, and that the apples "felt like Christmas tree bulbs."

So, how exactly does something like this form?

Susan Brown, Herman M. Cohn Professor of Agriculture and Life Science at Cornell University, explained to TODAY Food that the flesh of some apples, especially those that remain on trees late after the harvest season, will decay into almost an applesauce-like consistency. “The skin keeps it in like a filled water balloon,” she said.

The icy apples are pretty fragile.

Due to a combination of freezing rain and prolonged subzero temperatures, ice initially encased the whole fruit, but then the rotted apple mush seeped out from the bottom of the icy sphere, leaving the detailed, hollowed-out impression of an apple.

“I like the term that was coined ‘ghost apple,’” Brown said. “What I love about this story and the excitement it generated is that it showcases all the hard work our apple growers do in all weather conditions. The fact that Andrew Sietsema was out in freezing conditions, tending to his trees, allowed him to capture this beautiful occurrence.”

Photos of the clear "fruit" have been reposted and liked hundreds of times across various social media platforms. Many are simply in awe of the unusual phenomenon:

Amazing. They look enchanted. — Dawna (@VaGyver) February 9, 2019
The wonders of nature never cease to amaze! Thank you for amazing information. — sudhi kothapalli (@sudhikothapalli) February 9, 2019

While this may seem like a rarity, Brown (who herself hasn’t seen a ghost apple first-hand), said she’s heard from many researchers and growers that they have seen this occur before and that it’s most common with Golden Delicious and Jonagold apples. Jonagolds, known for their crisp flesh and tartly sweet flavor, are an offspring of the Golden Delicious.

But how rare are these ghost apples, really?

"I haven’t seen this phenomenon before, but I’m sure it’s happened before in other ice storms," Sietsema told TODAY. "And I mean, anything looks pretty cool with ice covering it."

“Others have seen it in their orchards, but only those brave enough to face the elements after an ice event ,” she said. “I would imagine that after this report and photos, you may have more [people] venturing out to see if they can spot any. I’m sure other growers out pruning may also document their own ‘haunted’ orchards.”

Ghost Apple Tree (Malus ‘Ghost’)

Ghost apple tree.

ghost apple taste

  • Delicious Fruit Features White Skin and Flesh
  • Sweet, Sub Acid Flavor
  • Versatile Apple
  • Use for Fresh Eating, Baking, Drying, Juices, Sauces and Freezing
  • Late Bloomer Resists Late Frosts
  • Prolific Early Harvest
  • Well-Adapted to Hot Climates
  • Low Chill Requirement

Plant collectors and apple lovers, come take a good look at this unusual fruit. Ghost Apple (Malus domestica Ghost’) is a recent introduction from the world-famous Zaiger team. Way more than just a novelty, we predict you’ll start seeing plenty of Ghosts. The taste is outstanding!

This heat resistant variety is great for all apple usages, and features a low chill requirement. It’s also cold hardy! That makes it extremely popular for edible landscaping from Zone 5 all the way down into Zone 9. There are reports of success in Zone 10, too.

Developed in the hot, interior valley of central California, Ghost is a variety that has survived a trial by fire. It’s had to endure typical summer temperatures of 100 to 110 degrees. Most varieties of apples either sunburn, or drop all their fruit under these extreme temperatures, but not Ghost. The pale fruit just shines in the summer sun.

The beautiful white skin actually reflects that hot summer sun, and thereby avoids the typical damaging effect of the heat. But at the same time, the heat contributes to the taste-test approved, sweet flavor.

Ghost is all about the sweetness of the fruit. This sub-acid variety has no tartness. For those that love fruit for dessert, Ghost Apple will be a favorite.

Can you imagine the kids in your life? They’ll go bananas for the funny name, unusual look and sugary-sweet taste of the Ghost!

With pretty white flowers in spring, and delicious white apples that glow in sun or under the moonlight, the Ghost Apple offers a lot of interest. Add one to your backyard orchard today!

How to Use Ghost Apple in the Landscape

While it blooms late, Ghost Apple is actually a mid-season ripening selection. You’ll need a pollinating partner. Try a Dolgo Crabapple, or use any of the mid-season blooming apples, such as Gala, Fuji or McIntosh.

In high desert climates, use either the Anna or Dorsett Golden as a pollinator to ensure a great crop.

Backyard orchards can be kept compact and manageable with summertime pruning each year. Decide how tall and wide you want your tree to be, then keep it there. Trees under 8 feet are easier to harvest.

If you want to keep it smaller, consider growing in a high density planting. Read our blogs or watch our YouTube videos on how to create and care for 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 plantings.

You can also plant them in a hedge row to give you a welcome privacy screen. Simply space them in a row 5 to 7 feet apart on center. Measure from the center of one tree to the center of the next.

Careful selection of varieties can help you with pollination partners. You’ll also extend your harvest period for up to 5 months of fantastic, homegrown apples.

Start picking the Ghost crop as the summer heat comes on. It’s versatile and can be used in many ways.

Ghost is wonderful straight off the tree as a fresh eating variety. Pick a few and put them right into the refrigerator for a cold, crisp, crunchy afternoon treat on a hot summer day.

This variety has good firmness and can be baked into an unexpected summer pie or tarts for breakfast. Don’t discount the reward of adding a Ghost Apple to the blender for a healthy morning smoothie.

Throw slices on the grill in the summer for a minute or two on each side. There is nothing that complements meat like the savory sweetness of a slice of grilled apple.

Add to salads and sandwiches. Try in out-of-this-world prepared chutney, or juice it. And of course, you’ll want to add it to cheese plates as an easy, but very special after-dinner offering.

Tips for Care

Plant your Ghost Apple tree in a full sun location that gets plenty of early morning sun. This is the drying sun and helps to cut down on moisture-related diseases.

Apples can tolerate wet locations, as long as the drainage is good. With soil that holds water long after a rain event, you’ll want to raise up the planting site. Create a raised bed, or bring in additional soil mounded in a heap 12 – 18 inches tall, 3 feet wide. You’ll plant in that mound to improve drainage away from the crown of the root.

In hot, dry climates, apply at least 3 to 4 inches of mulch around the tree. Spread it out 3 feet from the outside of the canopy. This helps to keep roots cool in the hot summer and cut down on surface evaporation, saving you the cost of water.

Give your trees a location with good air drainage. You’ll want to prune in late winter to remove branches growing into the interior of the canopy. The goal is to keep the canopy open to improve air flow and light penetration.

Prune in summer to control the overall height of the tree. It is recommended to keep all fruit trees below 10 feet tall for ease of maintenance and harvest. Summer pruning is the best way to control height and spread.

In hotter climates, when summer pruning always be careful to only allow filtered sunlight into the canopy and don’t overexpose previously unexposed limbs and branches. You’ll also want to use a tree wrap or paint the trunk with a white, interior latex paint diluted by 50% with water. This will avoid sunburn damage on the trunk for the first few years.

Ghost is a cutting-edge variety that is one-of-a-kind. Cold hardy, it’s also possibly the finest hot weather apple varieties.

The story behind odd phenomenon of ‘ghost apples’, share this article.

ghost apple taste

A man pruning apple trees in an icy orchard in Michigan on Wednesday discovered a very odd phenomenon: ghost apples.

Andrew Sietsema shot photos of the hollow ice apples in the Fruit Ridge area of Kent County, posted them on Facebook , and explained to WOOD TV and CNN just how they were created.

A freezing rain coated the rotting apples, creating a solid icy shell around them. As he pruned the trees, the trees shook, causing some applies to fall off. But those that remained on the tree had the mush slip out the bottom, leaving a ghost apple.

“I guess it was just cold enough that the ice covering the apple hadn’t melted yet, but it was warm enough that the apple inside turned to complete mush [apples have a lower freezing point than water],” Sietsema explained to CNN.

“And when I pruned a tree it would be shaken in the process, and the mush would slip out of the bottom of the ‘ghost apple.’

The apples are a variety called Jonagolds, one of Sietsema’s favorites, he told CNN, adding, “but we’ll call these ‘Jonaghosts.’”

The Crazy Cold Weather Is Making Spooky “Ghost Apples”

  • Published February 12, 2019

Malibu® Cocktails You Can Enjoy Every Day of Summer

Cool off with a cocktail that’s anything but watered, absolut® watermelon transforms craft cocktails into boozy bites, sittin’ pretty in pink all summer long with so, table of content.

You’ve probably heard the words “Polar Vortex” uttered a few times in the past week. The swirling air can make certain temperatures even colder than you would have expected. But these crazy temperatures aren’t just keeping people inside — they’re affecting produce in a really strange way. Because as you probably know, people farm different types of fruits and veggies all year round.

One farm worker in Michigan realized that the polar vortex did something strangely beautiful to a few apples, turning them into works of art instead of a nutritious lunch side . Seriously — the cold weather turned ordinary apples into something you’d assume was a painting.

Andrew Sietsema first posted the photos online, referring to them as “ghost apples.” He was one of the first to see them in person. Sietsema helps prune the apple trees and noticed that the temperatures obliterated the apples in an intriguing fashion.

“I guess it was just cold enough that the ice covering the apple hadn’t melted yet, but it was warm enough that the apple inside turned to complete mush,” Sietsema reportedly explained to CNN .

It’s a good thing he took photos, since like with most winter art (yes, I’m talking about snowmen) they’re quick to disappear once it gets a bit sunnier outside.

The photos were shared over 13,000 times on Facebook. Over 300 people commented with absolute amazement, simply because they’re not like anything most of us have ever seen before.

GHOST APPLES 👻🍎 After freezing rain in Michigan, apples that hadn’t been picked got coated in ice. Many fell off the tree. Some had their insides turn to mush as apples have lower freezing points. The mush and skin fell, leaving these “ghost apples.” 📷: Andrew Sietsema pic.twitter.com/MWKUUv43aI — Tyler Sebree ⚡️ (@TylerWSFA12) February 8, 2019

Of course, as beautiful as it is, people still cracked a few jokes. Because this is the internet.

And, a dad joke was cracked. Hey, if you have the chance, might as well take it.

This is also a pretty funny dig. (Even though it’s hard to believe that there are still so many people who don’t like water).

I’m from now on telling people who don’t like water they’re drinking Ghost Apple Juice — DrumsAndAmmo.com (@WALASIA) February 8, 2019

Nature brings out the creativity in all of us. This Twitter user was inspired to write a haiku about the ghost apples, and it’s not half bad.

ghost apples hanging in winter air scents of autumn #haiku — John Hawkhead (@HawkheadJohn) February 8, 2019

In general, it’s nice to appreciate nature. It reminds you that no matter what’s happening in the world, there’s still so much beauty in it.

These are the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. — cider greg (@brewergreg) February 9, 2019

Aside from haikus, they also inspired some incredible drawings. Check these out.

It’s so magical that a lot of people didn’t even think it was true. But one hoax buster on Twitter said that these apples were the real deal.

That’s true. https://t.co/RuoICxLdvg — HoaxEye (@hoaxeye) February 8, 2019

Someone explained the science behind it. The apples that were encased with ice were actually rotting, allowing it to move out of the weather-made structure.

There’s no hole that we see. And because it was rotting, and what ice does to cellular structures, an apple turned to mush wouldn’t need a very large hole to drain out of. — History's Raven (@HistorysRaven) February 8, 2019
Furthermore, the entire apple froze, but because the apple defrosted at a lower temperature than 32 degrees. Let’s say the temperature was 0 degrees. If the apple defrosted at 10 degrees, the mush would leak out of whatever hole we aren’t seeing, which there obviously is, while — History's Raven (@HistorysRaven) February 8, 2019
the water stays ice and maintains its shape. It’s really not that hard to comprehend. — History's Raven (@HistorysRaven) February 8, 2019

It does make a lot of sense. However, since this seems to be one of the first viral appearances of ghost apples, it still seems a little strange. And it also shows us what these severe weather conditions can mean for our crops.

But since it’s an apple, people had questions. Like, what would the ice taste like in this new form?

These ghost apples are likely very, very fragile. So it’s a good thing that Sietsema grabbed photos while he could. If not, nobody would have believed that these mini ice sculptures ever existed.

This is why I love the weather - it never stops amazing me! 😍 These 'ghost apples' were discovered in Michigan after freezing rain coated the tree. When the apples rotted they slipped out leaving their perfect icy jackets behind! 📷: Andrew Sietsema pic.twitter.com/CuJwRXyalU — Holly Green (@HollyJGreen) February 12, 2019

So, next time you’re expected to get freezing rain, make sure you protect both yourself and your outdoor plants if you can. But, something tells me that as long as this weather keeps up, we should be expecting plenty of other ghost fruits.

It’s funny if you think about it. A rotten apple as-is isn’t quite beautiful and serves little purpose. But thanks to the weather, it took something that wasn’t worth saving and turned it into a true beauty of nature.

Do White Apples Exist? (Surprising answer) 

This website is supported by its readers. If you click one of my links I may earn a commission. I am also a participant in the Amazon affiliates program and I will also earn a commission from qualified purchases.

Do white apples exist?

So recently, I’ve considered expanding upon my apple tree collection from the gala and golden delicious trees I currently have. I’ve been reading up in a fair bit of detail about white apples and apple trees. So do white apples exist? 

White apples do indeed exist. White apples, more commonly known as Ghost apples, have been created by Zaiger Genetics and contain white skin and inner flesh. These apples require warm temperatures to propagate. 

So where can you find these  white apples ? And what do these ghost apples need to thrive? Keep reading to find out more!

Just a quick heads up, over the past three years of running Plantpaladin, hundreds of people have asked for product recommendations. As such, You can find my favorite indoor bonsai tree here (link takes you to Bonsaiboy), my favorite outdoor bonsai tree (link takes you to Bonsaiboy), or have a look at all the products I recommend here . 

Do white apples exist? 

To determine if white  apples exist , I called up my local orchid, visited my local botanical gardens, spoke with experts, and surveyed a few plant paladin readers. 

All to ensure you have the most informative, up-to-date post on if white apples exist. 

To summarize: 

  • White apples do indeed exist. 
  • The most common white apple species has to be the ghost apple cultivated and created by  Zaiger Genetics.  
  • Ghost apples then require warm temperatures, direct sunlight, and 500 chill hours below 45 degrees F to produce fruit yearly.
  • These white apples are also non-self fruiting, meaning they need pollinating by other trees, most commonly Fuji Gala or granny smith apples. 
  • While Ghost apples have the best bang for your buck for white apples, other varieties include Russian heirloom varieties such as the yellow transparent and Lodi apples. 
  • That said, the whiteness of these apples will be nowhere near as bright as Ghost apples. These apples then tend to have a yellow/green tinge to them. 
  • Another well-known example is the White Transparent apple, which has a pale greenish-yellow or whitish skin when ripe. It is a summer apple variety typically tart and used for cooking or making applesauce.
  • The White Winter Pearmain has pale yellow or white skin with a hint of pink or red blush. 
  • This apple variety is known for its sweet and slightly tangy flavor and is often enjoyed fresh or used in baking.

About the term white apples

It’s worth noting that the term “white apple” can also be used to describe apple varieties that have a pale or creamy flesh color rather than referring to skin color. Apples with white flesh include the White Pearmain and the White Winter Calville.

So, while white apples are not as common as red or green varieties, there are indeed apple cultivars that exhibit white or pale colors in their skin or flesh.

Let’s break down this information in more detail.

Do white apples exist - infographic

Are Ghost apples white? 

So first up, ghost apples are indeed white. 

The term ghost apple might be slightly confusing as it has often been referred to as a  unique phenomeno n during frost-like conditions. 

We’re not talking about that. 

Instead, we are talking about Zaiger Genetics ghost apples. 

This company has managed to create what they call a Ghost apple. 

These white apples then have white creamy off-white skin and white internal flesh. 

These apples taste incredibly sweet and are not too acidic. 

Now the downside is that these apples are scarce, with Zaiger Genetics being the only producer of these apples, according to my research. 

These apples, however, are grown and adapted from regular  Malus Domestica  trees and will produce fruit in the summer.  

Are Lodi apples white?

So next up, we have Lodi apples. 

These varieties are large, slightly ribbed apples cultivated as replacements for the traditional Russian yellow transparent apples. 

These apples are good for cooking and pies due to their often bitter taste. 

Now these apples are either very light green or Yellow and, if ripe enough, can give an off-white appearance. 

That said, the Ghost apple from Zaiger Genetics is likely to be far more white if you are interested in a genuine white apple. 

What are the best white apples? 

The best white apple has to be the Zaiger Genetics ghost apple. This apple produces a bright, creamy white skin and a fleshy white interior. This apple is also incredibly sweet, making it ideal for cooking and general consumption. 

There are also several other white apple varieties; however the degree of whiteness is much less than ghost apples. 

Instead, these apples tend to be light green or yellow, often passing as white apples. 

  • White Winter Pearmain : This apple has a sweet, aromatic flavor with a hint of tartness. It has creamy white flesh and pale yellow or white skin with a slightly pink or red blush.
  • White Transparent : This early-season apple is known for its tart flavor and crisp texture. It has pale greenish-yellow or whitish skin when ripe and is often used for cooking or making applesauce.
  • White Sweetheart : This apple has a sweet and juicy flavor with a hint of pear-like notes. It has pale yellow or greenish-white skin with a slightly pink or red blush and is popular for fresh eating.
  • White Winter Calville : This apple variety has a crisp, creamy white flesh and a slightly tangy flavor. It has pale yellow or greenish-white skin with some red or pink streaks.
  • Egremont Russet:  While not entirely white, this apple has a pale yellow or greenish-yellow skin with a russet texture. It has a rich, nutty flavor and is often considered among the best russet apples.

Are white apples rare? 

True white apples with clean white skin and a white flesh interior are scarce, with only Zapier genetics ghost apple being the only one available for consumption. 

While plenty of other light-skinned off-green and yellow apples are on the market, such as the white winter caville apple, most of them have hints of other colors. 

As such, finding an actual white apple is very uncommon. 

Where are white apples found? 

True white apples, such as Zapier Genetics ghost apple, can only be purchased directly from them. 

Other White apples or apples classified as off-white can be found in various apple-growing regions worldwide. 

The specific availability of white apple varieties may depend on different regions’ climates and agricultural practices. Here are some general areas where white apples are grown:

  • United States:  White apples, such as the White Winter Pearmain and White Transparent, can be found in apple-growing regions throughout the United States, including states like Washington, New York, Michigan, and Oregon.
  • Europe:  Several white apple varieties are grown in Europe. Countries like France, England, Germany, and Italy cultivate white apples like the White Pearmain, White Winter Calville, and Egremont Russet.
  • Canada : Canadian provinces like Ontario and British Columbia are known for apple production, and white apple varieties are grown in these regions.
  • New Zealand:  New Zealand is a significant apple-growing country, and it produces white apple varieties like the White Winter Pearmain and other cultivars suited to its climate.
  • Other regions : White apples can also be found in apple-growing regions of countries like Australia, South Africa, and Chile.

What do white apples taste like? 

The white ghost apple has a Sweet sub-acidic flavor, making it ideal for general consumption and cooking. 

The taste of other white apples can vary depending on the specific variety. Still, they generally offer a range of flavors that can be sweet, tart, or combined. Here are some typical flavor profiles associated with white apples:

  • Sweet and aromatic:  Some white apple varieties have a pleasantly sweet flavor with hints of floral or honey-like notes. These apples often have a delicate, mild sweetness that is enjoyable for fresh eating.
  • Tart and tangy : Certain white apple varieties may exhibit a tart or tangy flavor profile. These apples can provide a refreshing and zesty taste with a balance of acidity and sweetness. They are often used in cooking or baking to add a tart element.
  • Subtle pear-like notes:  Some white apples have a subtle taste reminiscent of pears. This can add an exciting layer of flavor, providing a hint of fruity sweetness and the apple’s natural characteristics.
  • Nutty undertones : Certain white apples, particularly those with a russet texture like the Egremont Russet, may have a unique nutty flavor. This adds complexity to the overall taste experience and can be distinctive.

What is a white apple? 

A “white apple” can refer to either the color of the apple’s skin or its flesh. Here’s an overview of both meanings:

  • White-Skinned Apples:  These are apple varieties that have white or pale-colored skin. Examples of white-skinned apple varieties include the White Transparent, White Winter Pearmain, and SnowSweet. The color of the skin can range from pale greenish-yellow to whitish with hints of pink or red blush.
  • White-Fleshed Apples : These are apple varieties that have white or creamy-colored flesh. Examples of white-fleshed apple varieties include the White Pearmain, White Winter Calville, and White Sweetheart. The flesh of these apples tends to be pale or creamy white, unlike the more common yellow or greenish-white flesh found in many apple varieties.

It’s worth noting that the term “white apple” is not a specific apple variety but rather a description of the apple’s color. Several apple cultivars exhibit white skin or flesh, each with unique flavor, texture, and characteristics.

Do white bonsai apple trees exist? 

Apple bonsai trees that produce white apples are not currently available in the marketplace. If you want your bonsai tree to produce white apples, you must grow from the seed of a ghost apple tree. 

Survey results 

Finally, I wanted to ask five plant paladin readers if white apples existed. 

One of my big surprises was that because of the rarity of the ghost apples, the participants were convinced that most apples were off-white and had yellow/green tints.

My top picks for the gear you will need!

So like I mentioned earlier, over the past three years of running PlantPaladin, hundreds of people have asked me for my recommendations on the best bonsai gear on the market. 

Having spent thousands of dollars on bonsai items these past few years and tested at least 100 bonsai-specific products , I’ve listed my favorite products below – All of which I highly recommend and think you can get great value. 

They can purchase directly by clicking the link to take them to Amazon. 

Bonsai Tool Set : One of the significant challenges I’ve had is finding a toolset that was not only durable but didn’t break the bank. SOLIGT has recently developed a fantastic bonsai tool set that covers all the tools you need to trim, prune, and repot your trees. – You can grab it here . 

Complete Bonsai Set: Many of you will want to grow your bonsai trees entirely from scratch, but finding the varicose seeds, pots, and other items in one place can be challenging. Leaves and Sole then have created a complete bonsai set that I’ve personally used that ticks all the boxes. You can grab it here . 

Bonsai wire : The number of times I’ve run out of wire for my bonsai or purchased cheap bonsai wire that doesn’t do the job is embarrassing for me to admit. After a lot of trial and error, I found that using Hotop’s aluminum bonsai wire is one of the best options on the market. This can easily be used for both indoor and outdoor bonsai. You can grab it here.

What’s a ghost Apple? I think I have several of those growing, they look like Apple trees but they don’t have any Apples on them.

LOL! So do I…

Thanks for sharing the label. Interesting to learn it’s an early-season apple.

When it fruits for you, we’ll expect a full report…

Sounds like a Transparent almost, doesn’t it?

I contacted Dave Wilson Nursery about its patent status and they replied: patent applied for.

What are you going to use as a pollinator?

Almata Apple.

ghost apple taste

Lazy Evaluation Ranch said they taste horribly: http://lazyevaluationranch.tumblr.com/post/60301108506/we-have-one-small-ghost-apple-tree-it-makes

That is a cool looking apple. I hope you use it in your breeding experiments to make a tastier version!

I’d like to revive this thread as I have some intriguing questions. After a week or so of making calls to find someone that would ship this to PA, I finally found it and ordered two from Bay Laurel. First off, what would be a great partner for pollination that isn’t your run-of-the-mill Fuji or Gala Apple? @alan @mamuang @scottfsmith @39thparallel I mainly grow rare and offbeat varieties of things so I’d rather not have Fuji wasting my plot of land. Secondly I’ve seen two taste reports, one said its horrendous, the other delicious. Any thoughts @itheweatherman , have you gotten any fruit yet?

Might be a good candidate for a cider additive? My best batches of cider have had a blend of several varieties, some sweet, some not so sweet.

I may use Almata like @itheweatherman , but I’m waiting for others to chime in on other possible oddity pollinizers. From what I understand it’s a very early apple.

In the cooler zones most apple varieties overlap enough to pollinate each other. Even one freakishly late variety (unkown) at one site somehow gets pollinated consistently. It is if full bloom when a wide range of varieties on the same site have lost all their petals.

It ends up only getting one insecticide spray instead of 2, but the fruit is always as sound as all the other apples in the orchard.

So @alan do you feel with me having about fifteen other red apple varieties (Etters apples, pink pearl, hidden rose, red love, etc.) within row (about 30 trees) would be enough to pollinate Ghost?

Probably any one of those would do it. As you get further south the spread from early to late flowering varieties expands dramatically. I’m in Z6 in S. NY.

:ok_hand:

I would like to know if anyone had the chance to taste the Ghost apple. Any comments would be appreciated.

Help your bare roots grow with the Transplanting Bundle found here .

Latin Name : Malus sp. Site and Soil : Apples like 1/2 day to full sun and well-drained soil. Rootstock Description : M-7 is considered a semi-dwarf rootstock growing 12-16 ft. in height. M-7 is very hardy and adapted to most soils. Vigorous, drought tolerant, and well anchored, trees on M-7 should not require staking. M-26 is considered a dwarf rootstock, growing 8-12 ft. in height. M-26 induces early bearing, usually in 2-3 years after planting, and grows well in most soils, except very wet and poorly drained ones. On windy sites, trees grafted on M-26 may need staking. Pollination Requirements : Apples need another variety nearby for pollination. Neighboring trees often offer sufficient pollen for good fruit set. Consider Mason Bees to help pollinate and increase fruit production. Hardiness : Hardy to minus 30° F or below. Bearing Age : 2-3 years after planting. Size at Maturity : Dwarf 8-12ft. / Semi-dwarf 12-16 ft. Taste : Sweet, juicy Fruit Skin : White Fruit Flesh : White Bloom Time : April Ripening Time : Early September Yield : 30-50 lbs. Pests & Diseases : White Cloud can be affected by Apple Scab. Apple Scab is especially a problem in regions with wet springs, like we have in the Pacific Northwest. While it doesn’t seriously affect the eating quality of the fruit, it can cause black spots on the apples and foliage. Apple Scab can be controlled by sulfur and other sprays. Codling Moth can create wormy apples and aphids can damage the foliage of apple trees. USDA Zone : 4-9

Photos of Icicle 'Ghost Apples' Continue to Enchant

Social media users were sharing the pictures more than three years after they were snapped., bethania palma, published nov 23, 2022.

In February 2019, photographs circulated on the internet showing what appeared to be apple-shaped icicles dangling from the branch of a tree.

The term "ghost apple" isn't an official name, but it's been coined to describe the pictures Michigan resident Andrew Sietsema took; he told Forbes at the time that he believed they were formed after ice froze over apples on a tree.

Sietsema told NBC News  in 2019 that he found the ice apples while pruning near his home in Sparta, a town north of Grand Rapids, after a bout of freezing rain. He said that when he would prune the tree, some of the apples would fall off. Others that were sufficiently rotten had turned to liquid mush, and when he shook the branches, the liquid would slop out, leaving the ice casing behind. Apples, he explained to the TV news station, have a lower freezing point than water, which is why the mush remained liquid.

Although Sietsema took the pictures more than three years ago, as of this writing, social media users continued to repost them in admiration of their whimsical beauty. 

"The Today Show" asked Cornell University professor and apple expert Susan Brown about the phenomenon. Brown told the show that while she has never personally seen ghost apples, she's heard about them from other researchers and apple growers.

"Others have seen it in their orchards, but only those brave enough to face the elements after an  ice event ," Brown told "Today" in 2019. "I would imagine that after this report and photos, you may have more [people] venturing out to see if they can spot any. I'm sure other growers out pruning may also document their own 'haunted' orchards."

Ghost Apple Tree

Sweet ghost apple tree for hot climates.

  • Delicious Fruit Features White Skin and Flesh
  • Sweet, Sub Acid Flavor
  • Versatile Apple
  • Use for Fresh Eating, Baking, Drying, Juices, Sauces and Freezing
  • Late Bloomer Resists Late Frosts
  • Prolific Early Harvest
  • Well-Adapted to Hot Climates
  • Low Chill Requirement

Plant collectors and apple lovers, come take a good look at this unusual fruit. Ghost Apple (Malus domestica Ghost') is a recent introduction from the world-famous Zaiger team. Way more than just a novelty, we predict you'll start seeing plenty of Ghosts. The taste is outstanding!

This heat resistant variety is great for all apple usages, and features a low chill requirement. It's also cold hardy! That makes it extremely popular for edible landscaping from Zone 5 all the way down into Zone 9. There are reports of success in Zone 10, too.

Developed in the hot, interior valley of central California, Ghost is a variety that has survived a trial by fire. It's had to endure typical summer temperatures of 100 to 110 degrees . Most varieties of apples either sunburn, or drop all their fruit under these extreme temperatures, but not Ghost. The pale fruit just shines in the summer sun.

The beautiful white skin actually reflects that hot summer sun , and thereby avoids the typical damaging effect of the heat. But at the same time, the heat contributes to the taste-test approved, sweet flavor.

Ghost is all about the sweetness of the fruit . This sub-acid variety has no tartness. For those that love fruit for dessert, Ghost Apple will be a favorite.

Can you imagine the kids in your life? They'll go bananas for the funny name, unusual look and sugary-sweet taste of the Ghost!

With pretty white flowers in spring, and delicious white apples that glow in sun or under the moonlight, the Ghost Apple offers a lot of interest. Add one to your backyard orchard today!

You'll be one of the first to sink your teeth into these cool fruits, but definitely not the last. We predict that Ghost is going to be extremely popular, order now .

How to Use Ghost Apple in the Landscape

While it blooms late, Ghost Apple is actually a mid-season ripening selection. You'll need a pollinating partner. Try a Dolgo Crabapple, or use any of the mid-season blooming apples, such as Gala, Fuji or McIntosh.

In high desert climates, use either the Anna or Dorsett Golden as a pollinator to ensure a great crop.

Backyard orchards can be kept compact and manageable with summertime pruning each year. Decide how tall and wide you want your tree to be, then keep it there. Trees under 8 feet are easier to harvest.

If you want to keep it smaller, consider growing in a high density planting. Read our blogs or watch our YouTube videos on how to create and care for 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 plantings.

You can also plant them in a hedge row to give you a welcome privacy screen. Simply space them in a row 5 to 7 feet apart on center. Measure from the center of one tree to the center of the next.

Careful selection of varieties can help you with pollination partners. You'll also extend your harvest period for up to 5 months of fantastic, homegrown apples.

Start picking the Ghost crop as the summer heat comes on. It's versatile and can be used in many ways.

Ghost is wonderful straight off the tree as a fresh eating variety . Pick a few and put them right into the refrigerator for a cold, crisp, crunchy afternoon treat on a hot summer day.

This variety has good firmness and can be baked into an unexpected summer pie or tarts for breakfast. Don't discount the reward of adding a Ghost Apple to the blender for a healthy morning smoothie.

Throw slices on the grill in the summer for a minute or two on each side. There is nothing that complements meat like the savory sweetness of a slice of grilled apple.

Add to salads and sandwiches. Try in out-of-this-world prepared chutney, or juice it. And of course, you'll want to add it to cheese plates as an easy, but very special after-dinner offering.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant your Ghost Apple tree in a full sun location that gets plenty of early morning sun. This is the drying sun and helps to cut down on moisture-related diseases.

Apples can tolerate wet locations, as long as the drainage is good. With soil that holds water long after a rain event, you'll want to raise up the planting site. Create a raised bed, or bring in additional soil mounded in a heap 12 - 18 inches tall, 3 feet wide. You'll plant in that mound to improve drainage away from the crown of the root.

In hot, dry climates, apply at least 3 to 4 inches of mulch around the tree. Spread it out 3 feet from the outside of the canopy. This helps to keep roots cool in the hot summer and cut down on surface evaporation, saving you the cost of water.

Give your trees a location with good air drainage. You'll want to prune in late winter to remove branches growing into the interior of the canopy. The goal is to keep the canopy open to improve air flow and light penetration.

Prune in summer to control the overall height of the tree. It is recommended to keep all fruit trees below 10 feet tall for ease of maintenance and harvest. Summer pruning is the best way to control height and spread.

In hotter climates, when summer pruning always be careful to only allow filtered sunlight into the canopy and don't overexpose previously unexposed limbs and branches. You'll also want to use a tree wrap or paint the trunk with a white, interior latex paint diluted by 50% with water. This will avoid sunburn damage on the trunk for the first few years.

Ghost is a cutting-edge variety that is one-of-a-kind . Cold hardy, it's also possibly the finest hot weather apple varieties. They are in limited supply, order yours today or risk having to wait until next year!

Ghost Apple Tree Frequently Asked Questions

When to plant ghost apple trees.

Planting Bareroot trees as soon as you can dig a hole in spring and until hot weather, the earlier the better. Plant container Apple trees throughout the growing season with complete success - that is the benefit of container plants - to extend the planting season. Your County Agricultural Extension Office is a great resource for first and last frost dates in your area.

How to Plant Ghost Apple Trees

Dig a large hole only as deep as needed to accommodate the bareroot or container root ball, and twice as wide. Add Nature Hills Root Booster to speed root establishment. Remove the pot or bag and situate it into the hole so the top of the soil (soil line if bareroot), is level with the new location's soil being careful not to plant too deep. Water in again very well and backfill with the same soil you dug up, tamping down gently to ensure there are no air pockets.

Top off with a 3-4 inch thick layer of Arborist mulch. Consider staking your tree to keep its trunk growing straight for the first year to ensure it stands tall against strong winds and drifting snow.

When to Prune Ghost Apple Trees

Trim off any broken branches from delivery as soon as you take them out of the box. Prune and trim apple trees while dormant, in late winter or early spring, before you see new growth.

How to Prune Ghost Apple Trees

Dormant prune to:

  • Remove any double leaders or narrow crotch angles
  • Eliminate any crossing branches
  • Thin interior branching and leave the fruiting spurs and strong branches in place opening up the canopy
  • Branching at least 24-36 inches above the ground

Prune Apple trees in the summer to:

  • Control size and shape by reducing the length of longer new growth on vigorous trees
  • Remove water sprouts on the main trunk or older branches in the crown
  • Remove suckers at the base of the trunk
  • Thin fruit during heavy years on established trees

How to Care for Ghost Apple Trees

Growing an apple tree is easy when proper soil, good drainage, attention to moisture, and regular fertility are maintained. Once you've chosen an apple tree that works for your climate, in the size you need for your landscape, and its pollinator (if needed), then you've accomplished half the battle!

  • Apple trees do best in full sun and well-drained soil
  • Water your apple trees when it gets dry - especially during the fruit production stage, and drought periods to keep it stress-free
  • Use arborists' wood chips to mulch over the roots of your apples and have your soil tested to see what your soil may be lacking before adding fertilizers
  • Maintenance pruning and shaping

Apple trees will tolerate a wide range of soils, so long as water and nutrients are not limited and the pH level is adequate.

How to Fertilize Ghost Apple Trees

For the first year, water alone is most important. It is always best to get a soil test to see what your soil is lacking before adding more fertilizers. Once established, a fertilizer routine may be beneficial. We do offer some excellent slow-release organic options, applied according to the package directions.

Fruit trees need more phosphate and it's possible to apply too much nitrogen which affects the soil's pH. Test soil acidity or alkalinity using a pH Tester.

Fertilize in spring when you first see new growth emerging.

  • Don't overdo it
  • Phosphates are your friends
  • Pay attention to pH in areas with extremely high or low soil pH
  • Follow the directions

Ghost Apple Tree Pollinating Info

Ghost is not self-fruiting and needs a pollinating partner. Pair with one of these varieties:

  • Anna Apple Tree
  • Dorsett Golden Apple Tree
  • McIntosh Apple Tree
  • Gala Apple Tree
  • Fuji Apple Tree
  • Granny Smith Apple Tree

Harvest Times for Ghost Apple Trees

Ghost’s are typically ready to harvest in July.

Early-Season? Mid-Season? Late-Season? The terminology can be confusing for new apple tree growers. Weather, climate and your tree determine when it's ripe.

For Apples:

  • Early-season is usually June-July
  • Mid-season can be August-September
  • Late-season can be from late September-November

The growing season consists of spring, summer, and fall, and varies with climate and weather. Areas with longer growing seasons in the warmer hardiness zones can greatly affect the harvest times for each particular apple variety grown in your area. Learn which growing zone you are in .

"Viking Funeral" -- When Thorfinn's bones are discovered on the Woodstone property, he asks Sam to conduct the traditional Viking funeral he's always wanted. However, Sam and Jay are torn when they learn that the bones could be sold to a museum for a lot of much-needed cash. Also, the ghosts conduct an election for a "ghost representative" to bring issues to Sam, on GHOSTS, Thursday, Oct. 14 (9:01-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the Season 3 premiere of “ Ghosts ,” titled “The Owl,” which aired Feb. 15 on CBS.

Flower, hopefully you’re finally getting to cuddle a few bears up there in the sky. Yes, you read that right: There’s one less ghost on “Ghosts,” as the characters said farewell to Flower on the Season 3 premiere of CBS’ hit comedy.

Flower is the 1960s-era hippie who died trying to hug a bear while high on acid, and remained a bit forgetful and drugged-out while living in the purgatory that is Woodstone Mansion.

“We wanted it to be somebody very consequential,” executive producer Joe Port told Variety . “We wanted to be someone who’d have an impact on the other ghosts and obviously on Sam and Jay to some degree.”

Fellow exec producer Joe Wiseman said that the writers didn’t necessarily know which ghost would be “sucked off” (yes, that’s the term used on the show to describe the moment the ghosts living in purgatory on the estate are finally sent to heaven or hell) when they wrote the Season 2 finale. But they chose Flower because of how her disappearance might disrupt the order of things inside the house — and particularly impact Viking Thor (Devan Chandler Long), who had just developed a relationship with the hippie.

“That was a lengthy conversation,” Wiseman said. “We had definitely talked about candidates and what would be the pros and cons about various people and whatnot. Flower came out of a long conversation we had in the writers’ room. We wanted someone who was going to be impactful, and who would lead to a lot of stories.”

He added: “I once very unpopularly compared it to ‘Gilligan’s Island’ in the room where, if one of the people on ‘Gilligan’s Island’ made it off the island, you’d be happy for them. But you’d also be jealous. And you’d also be sad that they were gone. All our characters already dead. So someone getting sucked off is a is a complicated thing on the show.”

Does this mean we’ve seen the last of Sheila Carrasco, who has played Flower since the show’s launch? Not necessarily. The producers play it coy when asked if Flower will ever appear again.

“I think it takes some interesting turns,” Port said. “In terms of seeing ghosts going forward or not, this is the kind of show where you could see a ghost anywhere. We’ve hinted that ghosts are in heaven. They’re in hell, they’re on Earth, so I think there’s different ways to see people too.”

“Ghosts” had been in the writers room for three weeks when things shut down last year due to the Hollywood strikes. As a result there will only be 10 episodes during this truncated season. But the producers said they didn’t change much of the trajectory of this season’s story arcs — they just hit those story milestones a bit faster.

Among the stories that “Ghosts” will follow this season, Jay is set on building a restaurant for the bed and breakfast. There’s a Pete (Richie Moriarty) storyline the producers are excited about but are keeping a secret for now. And then there’s the engagement of Isaac (Brandon Scott Jones) and Nigel (John Hartman).

“We’re building toward a wedding this season,” Port said. “And as far as the restaurant arc goes, it’s been really helpful in terms of centering Utkarsh’s character [who can’t see the ghosts], because that’s one of our challenges always is how does this guy who can’t talk to 80% of the cast, get involved in stories?”

Meanwhile, the show promises to introduce more ghosts this year, and also share more of the ghosts’ powers. And we’ll learn about how another one of the ghosts died. (That means either Hetty, played by Rebecca Wisocky, or Sasappis, played by Román Zaragoza.) Also, we’ll see more of Betsy Sodaro as Nancy, the leader of the basement cholera victims, as she spends more time upstairs.

“Part of the fun is also thinking of creative ways to get ghosts,” Wiseman said. “Last season we had the car ghost. We try to think of creative, fun ways to get ghosts from the outside to come in as well. Another another way we did that in the past was the seance with the maid. So this year, we have another fun creative way of getting your ghosts to visit Woodstone.”

Ghost Greens Apple Cider: This Fall Flavor Won’t Last Forever (But is Back for 2023)

It’s simply been too long since we’ve covered Ghost Greens , the loaded, legendary greens formula from Ghost Lifestyle . The last time we wrote about it was Ally Besse’s Passionfruit Greens flavor, where we asked (non-rhetorically) if it was the best greens flavor on the entire market. It was that good.

Ghost Greens Apple Cider: The Ghost is Here for Halloween

Try out this delicious and seasonally-appropriate Apple Cider flavor of Ghost Greens.

While we’re hoping Ally’s delicious Passionfruit flavor will make a return, we may have something even better for the Fall of 2022:

Ghost Greens Apple Cider

You’ve heard of green apple flavors, but this is definitely not that. Instead, the legends are launching a limited-edition Ghost Greens Apple Cider flavor, which is a perfect complement for your autumn immune-boosting stack as we get ready for the cold weather season here in the Northern Hemisphere.

But don’t worry, Australians, you’re invited too — this is a global launch, kicking off on September 28, 2022. Let’s look at prices and availability, our flavor/tasting review, and then recap the formula:

Apple Cider?!

Nope — it’s not sour apple, and it’s not apple cider vinegar — this is real deal apple cider flavor, a fall favorite long before drinking vinegar re-popularized. Nothing against apple cider vinegar, but apple cider is far more delicious.

Apple cider is really just an unsweetened and unfiltered drink made from apples. As opposed to “apple juice”, which is filtered and more clear, apple cider brings a bolder, more powerful flavor. In America, we often just call it cider , but in other parts of the world, it’s sometimes known as “cloudy apple juice” . This is a non-alcoholic drink and it’s amazing.

A recap on Ghost Greens

ghost apple taste

Ghost Greens is a monstrous and incredibly-developed formula, so if you want to dive deep into its profile, read our article titled Ghost Greens: The Legends Foray Into Overall Health and Wellness . Inside, we have two major blends, each with three supporting components inside:

GHOST FRUITS x VEGETABLES – 6640 mg

Here, we have the legendary Super Greens blend that’s led by a large amount of Kale Powder and equal doses of matcha , wheat grass , spirulina , and chlorella — all in 500 milligram doses. These provide plenty of health-supporting chlorophyll, which can be considered the “hemoglobin of the plant world”. Additional grasses are added, and don’t miss the nice 10:1 astragalus extract added at the end.

But it’s not just all greens . The Antioxidant Reds blend provides a powerful spread of — you guessed it — antioxidants. Acai juice and pomegranate juice powders pull up the front at 500 milligrams each, and then cognition-supporting blueberry juice powder alongside cranberry powder come next. Don’t miss the jabuticaba powder that comes next, we don’t see this one too often.

GHOST GUT HEALTH – 2225 mg

Now it’s time to support the gut. Most greens formulas are designed to target specific health systems, and Ghost choses gut health for theirs.

A Greens Powder that Tastes Great

Between the fruit extracts, vegetable extracts, and probiotics, Ghost Greens will clean up your health and taste amazing at the same time!

Inulin serves a multifunction role, providing prebiotic fiber that helps feed your gut’s healthy bacteria… it also improves the overall taste!

After that, we have a GHOST Probiotic blend that includes a fully-disclosed and unique mix of B. subtilis and the popular Lactobacillus acidophilus followed by S. boulardii , Bacillus coagulans and B. lactis . We don’t commonly see Bacillus Subtilis , the first ingredient in the blend — it helps produce heat-resistant spores.

Finally, we have a very large digestive enzyme blend from BioCore Optimum Complete , which has many of our “common” digestive enzymes like amylase (for starches), protease (for proteins), and lactase (for lactose / milk sugars), but there’s far more included as well — like invertase and alpha-galactosidase .

Other Flavors Available

Find this article too late, or just not into apple cider? That’s a shame either way, but below is the list of all Ghost Greens flavors PricePlow has seen:

Ghost Greens

It’s not hard — get your healthy cider on!

Fall time is coming, and that means that winter time is coming… and that means it’s time to double down on health to prepare for the cold winter. On top of a healthy, high-protein diet, a stacked greens / superfoods formula like this can definitely be a big piece of that puzzle.

When Ghost Greens first came out, we saw the formula and weren’t sure they’d be able to get it to taste to Ghost’s standards. But this is Ghost Lifestyle , and they don’t launch bad-tasting products. Hell, even their Ghost Fish Oil smells pretty good!

You just have to find the one that’s best for your personal preferences. And if apple cider is your style, then get in on this one quickly, because it won’t be around forever!

How to Fix Ghost Touch Issue on the Apple Watch

Darryl Dsouza

Is your Apple Watch randomly responding to inputs, tapping buttons, or moving elements on the screen without you even touching it? This problem is commonly known as Ghost Touch, Phantom Touch, or False Touch. Since many Apple Watch users are encountering this issue, we’ve put together this guide with the best solutions to help you fix ghost touch issues on your Apple Watch. 

Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 Users Facing Ghost Touch Issues

As of writing this article many Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 users have reported encountering Ghost Touch issues. In an internal memo shared with the Apple Authorized Service Providers, Apple has acknowledged that some Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 users are facing touch-related issues. 

Apple has informed the technicians at the Apple Authorized Service Providers not to replace the Apple Watch. But, rather ask the customer to wait for a watchOS update to fix the issue. Moreover, Apple has also instructed the technicians to ask the user to force restart their Apple Watch whenever they encounter the ghost touch issue.  

How to fix Ghost Touch Issues on the Apple Watch

1. force restart apple watch to fix ghost touch issues.

Whenever you encounter “Ghost Touch,” “Phantom Touch” or “False Touch” issues on the Apple Watch, the screen exhibits erratic behavior and certain areas might become unresponsive to touch too. In this scenario, you can’t restart the device as it requires interacting with the screen. Therefore, the next best solution is to force restart to fix ghost touch issues on the Apple Watch. 

Time needed:  1 minute

Steps to Force Restart Apple Watch 

Force Restart Apple Watch

2. Remove the Cover and screen protector 

To protect the Apple Watch from accidental drops or scratches, many of us use cases and screen protectors. However, the screen protector might be the cause of these ghost touches. Moreover, several Apple Watch cases have protective bezels that overlap on the screen. While they do a good job of protecting the device, they might be the reason for ghost touches on your Apple Watch. This is why we suggest removing the cover and screen protector from the Apple Watch to fix ghost touch issues. 

3. Update watchOS to fix Ghost Touch Issues on the Apple Watch

The ghost touch issue on the Apple Watch is most likely being caused due to a software bug. Hence, updating watchOS to the latest version is the best solution to fix ghost touch issues on the Apple Watch. 

Update watchOS using the Watch app on the paired iPhone. 

  • Open the Watch app on your iPhone. 
  • Head to the My Watch tab and tap the General option. 

Head to Software Update in the Watch App

  • Once a progress wheel appears on your Apple Watch, it means that the update has begun and will take a while to complete. 

Update watchOS directly on the Apple Watch. 

  • Press the Digital Crown to go to the Home Screen .
  • Head to the Settings app and tap the General option.
  • Tap the Software Update option.
  • Here, tap the Install button to update watchOS. 

Update watchOS directly on the Apple Watch

4. Unpair and Reset Apple Watch

Unpairing and resetting the Apple Watch is another solution that might help fix the ghost touch issues. Also, if the Apple Watch’s screen is unresponsive, you can still unpair and reset it using the Watch App on the paired iPhone. Please ensure that you have your Apple ID and Password handy before you follow the steps mentioned below. 

Steps to Unpair and Reset Apple Watch using iPhone. 

  • Open the Watch app on your iPhone and head to the My Watch tab. 
  • Here, tap the All Watches option at the top of the screen. 
  • Tap the “ i ” button located next to the paired watch you want to unpair.

  • If asked, enter your Apple ID password and then tap the Unpair button at the top right corner. 
  • The unpairing process will take a while to complete. 
  • Lastly, bring your iPhone and Apple Watch close to each other and then follow the on-screen instructions to pair the Apple Watch with your iPhone. 

In case you do not have the paired iPhone with you, you can still reset the Apple Watch. The only condition is that the screen should respond to touches. 

  • Head to the Settings app and navigate to the General option.
  • Tap Reset and then select the Erase All Content and Settings option. 
  • If asked, enter your Apple ID password . 
  • Finally, tap the Erase All button to confirm your selection. 

Erase All Content and Settings

5. Contact Apple Support to fix Ghost Touch Issues on the Apple Watch

In most cases the ghost touch issue is due to a software bug and the steps mentioned above should help you fix the issue. However, there are instances where hardware failure might lead to ghost touch issues on the Apple Watch. Hence, we recommend contacting Apple Support or heading to the nearest official Apple Store to get your device inspected at the Genius Bar. 

We hope this guide helps you fix ghost touch issues on your Apple Watch. If you have any doubts or are aware of other methods that help fix the issue, please let us know in the comments below.

The 8 best Halloween cereals, taste-tested and ranked

When you buy through our links, Business Insider may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more

It's spooky season, which means I'm throwing every box of Halloween cereal I find into the cart. Since we're deep into October, my pantry has runneth over with limited edition Halloween cereals. My kids are begging me to let them have some, but this is my thing. Plus, it's still socially acceptable for them to go door-to-door threatening people with tricks for free candy. Get out there and work for your sugar, kids!

If you want to make your kids jealous (or ok, even share with them), here are the best Halloween breakfast cereals in my professional opinion.

1st place: Monster Mash Remix

ghost apple taste

Monster Mash Cereal Remix - See at Amazon

Monster Mash is basically the spooky cereal version of the 1980s country supergroup The Highwaymen . Only, Monster Mash has an extra member. In 2021, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of monster cereals, Monster Mash combines the best aspects of classics Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry as well as short-lived Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute. This year they add DJ Carmella Creeper and form the best Halloween cereal I've ever had. The fruitiness takes center stages, specifically strawberry and blueberry with a subtle chocolatey Chocula influence. Overall, the ensemble plays well together for a balanced delectable treat.

Rating: 10/10

Some nutritional info: 11g of sugar per serving, main ingredient is whole grain corn, 2g fiber and protein

2nd place: Chocolate Frosted Flakes with Spooky Marshmallows

ghost apple taste

Frosted Flakes Chocolate Cereal with Spooky Marshmallows - See at Amazon

I'm a fan of classic Frosted Flakes — I might even go so far as to say they're grrrreat. The Chocolate with Spooky Marshmallows version is the most sugar-packed cereal I tested. The marshmallow shapes are a ghost, bat, and Frankenstein's monster. I mostly enjoyed the flavor: a strong chocolate flavoring with sugary marshmallow bursts. The Spooky Frosted Flakes appeared to have more marshmallows than the other cereals on this list, and with its excess chocolate, it did the best job of flavoring the leftover milk. This year's box features a spooky Tony the Tiger instead of Frankenstein's monster, but it's the same deliciousness inside.

Rating: 8/10

Some nutritional info: 17g sugar per serving, main ingredient is milled corn, <1g fiber, 2g protein

3rd place: Reese's Puffs Bats

ghost apple taste

Reese's Bats Cereal - See at Amazon

Is there a better candy brand than Reese's? Not in my book. I snatch up anything Reese's. I still have some unopened boxes of the limited edition Travis Scott Reeses Puffs. Reese's Puffs Bats bats taste exactly the same as normal Reese's Puffs, which is fine by me. Reese's Puffs Bats has an evenly balanced combination of peanut butter-flavored bats and chocolate-flavored bats. I like that the sweetness isn't overbearing. Interesting fact: This is the only cereal on our list that doesn't have marshmallows.

Rating:  7/10

Some nutritional info: 12g of sugar per serving, main ingredient is whole grain corn, has peanuts, 2g fiber, 3g protein

Honorable mention: Count Chocula

ghost apple taste

Count Chocula Cereal - See at Amazon

Based on an informal survey of my foodie group and Google search volume, Count Chocola is the most popular spooky cereal. It's also the oldest (a title it shares with Franken Berry). It will always hold a special place in my heart. Consisting of chocolatey whole grain corn bits and marshmallow pieces, Count Chocula is my favorite of General Mills' monster cereals. Specifically, I like that it turns the leftover milk into chocolate milk so you get an extra treat.

Rating: 7/10

Some nutritional info: 12g of sugar per serving, main ingredient is whole grain corn, 1g fiber and protein

Honorable mention: Froot Loops with Spooky Marshmallows

ghost apple taste

Froot Loops Marshmallow Breakfast Cereal - See at Amazon

My neighbor had a rough day last week, and he just offhandedly mentioned that he could go for some Froot Loops. I (begrudgingly) gave him a bowl of this, and his mood improved dramatically. I'm a fan of Froot Loops, and the spooky marshmallows just add to the flavorpalooza. However, I don't like that it contains wheat since I have to go easy on gluten. Also, the games and jokes on the box are the exact same as the ones on Frosted Flakes and Apple Jacks. 

Some nutritional info: 15g of sugar per serving, main ingredient is sugar, contains wheat, 2g fiber and protein

Honorable mention: Apple Jacks with Spooky Marshmallows

ghost apple taste

Apple Jacks Marshmallow Breakfast Cereal - See at Amazon

Apple Jacks with Spooky Marshmallows is remarkably similar to the Froot Loops. They have the same bat, ghost, and Frankenstein's monster marshmallows and two colors of O-shaped corn/wheat bits. The difference is in the flavoring of the bits. The Apple Jacks taste more like apples. If you prefer Apple Jacks to Froot Loops in general, you may want to go with this instead of our #5 pick.

Rating:  6/10 

Some nutritional info: 16g of sugar per serving, main ingredient is sugar, contains wheat, 2g fiber and protein

Honorable mention: Boo Berry

ghost apple taste

Boo Berry Cereal - See at Amazon

Boo Berry was introduced in 1973, two years after its Franken Berry and Count Chocula comrades. I will gladly chow down on Boo Berry if the above options aren't available, but I think it suffers from low sugar content. After eating a bowl of the spooky Frosted Flakes, Boo Berry tastes bland in comparison. Still, if you love blueberry-flavored sweets and want a relatively low-sugar sugary cereal, Boo Berry is the way to go.

Rating:  5/10

Some nutritional info: 11g of sugar per serving, main ingredient is whole grain corn, 1g fiber and protein

Last place: Franken Berry

ghost apple taste

Franken Berry Cereal - See at Amazon

Please don't email me to tell me that it should be called "Frankenstein's Monster Berry." We are dealing with a portmanteau here, and for all we know, "Franken" is short for "Frankenstein's Monster." That said, this is essentially the same cereal as Boo Berry, only it's vaguely strawberry-flavored rather than blueberry. If the strawberry flavor was more pronounced, I'd rate this higher, but as it is, it's too mild. Still, I hide the box from my kids.

Apple Investigating 'Ghost Touches' Issue Affecting Some Series 9 and Ultra 2 Watches

In an internal memo shared with Apple Authorized Service Providers this week, Apple said it is "aware of" and "investigating" a touch-related issue affecting some Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 displays.

apple watch series 9 display

The issue may cause the screen on affected Apple Watch models to "jump erratically" or exhibit other unexpected behavior, without any user interaction, according to Apple. The memo said the issue can also result in an Apple Watch starting a phone call unintentionally, and prevent users from entering the device's passcode.

Apple recommends that customers keep their Apple Watch's software up to date, suggesting that the company is hopeful it will be able to address the issue in a future watchOS update. Apple did not say how widespread the issue is, or provide a timeframe for a potential fix. It is unclear if defective hardware is a contributing factor.

Apple has instructed technicians not to repair affected Apple Watch models while it investigates. In the meantime, technicians are told to ask customers who are experiencing this issue to force restart their Apple Watch by holding down the Digital Crown and the side button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 models were released in September 2023.

Nah, they just want us to take it back to an Apple Store so they can "fix" it. They're going to call it a "recall," but they just want to disable the blood-oxygen sensor. They ain't getting a hold of mine. Nope.

"Some customers may report their Apple Watch Series 9 or Apple Watch Ultra 2 is experiencing false touches on their display," reads Apple's memo, obtained by MacRumors . Apple said some customers may describe the issue as "ghost" touches.

Ghost Whey Apple Cider Doughnut Review

Ghost Apple Cider Doughnut Whey

ghost apple taste

Taste Apple Cider Doughnut - This is a really unique seasonal protein flavor. A cider in general can provide a crisp, tangy, sweet, bold, or elegant taste. With the popular fall drink of apple, cider Ghost was able to capture the sweet and crisp apple flavor with the backend doughnut that kicks in. The cinnamon sugar and buttery doughnut flavor is present as the flavor tickles on your tastebuds The combination is fantastic when paired with the small inclusions of pastry pieces in the formula. The inclusions help paint the picture of replicating the fall seasonal dessert in typical Ghost fashion. While the inclusions are so small they do not cause any big clumps or issues when mixing in a blender bottle or mixing in a blender.

Mixability Ghost Whey mixes with ease. I use around 6-8oz of water or almond milk for 1 scoop of the product. I did not see any left-over powder sitting at the bottom or clumps in my shaker bottle. Ghost Whey is light in nature, so there is usually never an issue with mixing as a shake, protein pudding, or used in baking.

H alloween is coming early to some Apple Watch users, as a strange "ghost touch" glitch is causing watches to make calls, swipe screens, and even prevent wearers from entering their password -- all without the screen being touched. 

In a recent memo to authorized Apple retail locations, the company explained that some customers using the Apple Watch Series 9 or Apple Watch Ultra 2 were experiencing false touches on their display. This issue, the memo noted, causes the screen to jump or behave erratically without any input from the wearer. Since the screen is receiving random inputs, this could lead to inconveniences like mis-tapped screens, embarrassing situations such as accidentally placed calls, or even users being locked out of their watches entirely because they can't enter their password.

The memo, first reported by MacRumors , goes on to instruct technicians not to attempt any repairs until the company investigates. Until then, simply doing a hard reset, or holding the crown and side button at the same time for 10 seconds until the Apple logo goes away, seems to temporarily fix things.

As a reminder, if you're having issues with being unable to enter your watch password, you can set your watch to automatically unlock when you use Face ID on a paired iPhone .

The  Apple Watch Ultra 2  and  Apple Watch Series 9  were just released last September and quickly gained reputations as the best smartwatches on the market. Shortly after debut though, problems with the display flickering began to arise, followed by a legal battle and temporary  ban on sale of the devices.

Apple hasn't said how many users are affected, but given that it released a memo to retailers, it's likely to be fairly widespread. It's also not clear whether this is a hardware or a software issue, but given that it just popped up all of a sudden, it's most likely the latter, which could hopefully be fixed with a WatchOS update.

‘Constellation': Smartly written sci-fi series plays like a chilling ghost story

An astronaut comes home to an inexplicably altered earth on the visually stunning apple tv+ show..

Noomi Rapace wears astronaut gear in a still shot from "Constellation."

Noomi Rapace plays an astronaut who survives a space station disaster but comes home to a life she doesn’t recognize on “Constellation.”

Space travel does weird things to the human body and the mind.

NASA researchers have found astronauts can grow up to 3% taller living in microgravity and also are likely to experience vision problems associated with Spaceflight-Associated Neuro-Ocular Syndrome (SANS). Studies have also found that astronauts can experience cognitive dysfunction, difficulties sleeping, anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. Then there are the reports of astronauts and cosmonauts claiming they’ve seen or heard inexplicable things, like NASA astronaut’s Story Musgrave saying he saw eel-like tubes “swimming” through space.

The Apple TV+ limited series “Constellation” pulls its inspiration from the aforementioned elements, not to mention films ranging from “2001: A Space Odyssey” to “Interstellar” to “Gravity” to “Lucy in the Sky,” and oh, it’s a feast for conspiracy theorists to boot. This is the very definition of science FICTION, and while the shifting points of view and the jumps along the timeline and the sometimes maddening twists and turns will test your patience, showrunner Peter Harness has created a visually stunning, often disturbing and quite chilling psychological thriller.

Premiering with three episodes Wednesday on Apple TV+, followed by a new episode each Wednesday through March 27.

On multiple occasions, certain jump-scares and reveals gave me actual, full-body chills. You almost get mad at how effective this series is at pushing the shock buttons.

“Constellation” kicks off Wednesday with a sequence set deep in the wintry woods of Northern Europe that won’t make sense until many episodes later — and even then, in keeping with the deliberately tricky nature of the series, we are almost never entirely certain whether what we’re seeing is real or is in the mind of one of various unreliable narrators. (This is a story treading in the liminal state between possible worlds, kind of like … “The Twilight Zone.”)

The action then shifts to the International Space Station, where astronaut Jo Ericsson (an excellent Noomi Rapace) is FaceTime-ing with her 11-year-old daughter, Alice, played by twins Rosie and Davina Coleman. (Seeing as how there’s no way to determine which girl is in which scene, one can only conclude they’re equally marvelous in handling a role that grows more complex along the way.) After a devastating explosion results in the death of Cmdr. Paul Lancaster (William Catlett), three of the surviving crew members return home in an emergency vessel, which only holds only three, with Jo remaining behind to race against the clock to repair the second emergency vessel and defy nearly insurmountable odds as her oxygen supply rapidly depletes — but she does it. She makes it.

Jo is home, reunited with her beloved Alice and with her husband, Magnus (James D’Arcy), who seems almost conflicted about being reunited with Jo, and this is our first indication something is awry.

Everything in Jo’s world seems … different from what she remembered. The car that was red is now blue. Items in the cupboards have been rearranged. (Some of the interiors in “Constellation” are dark and muted; others are bathed in vibrant colors. This serves to enhance the feeling we’re bouncing between different worlds.) There’s now a piano in the house, but Jo doesn’t know how to play the piano — and yet when she sits down, her fingers dance across the keys as she plays a Rachmaninoff prelude flawlessly.

Even more disturbing, Alice doesn’t smell like Alice to Jo, and the girl seems frightened of her mother, while Magnus eventually reveals to her that they were on the verge of splitting before she left on her mission. As Jo struggles with her grasp on reality and the viewer wonders whether this is all in her mind, we also follow the equally perplexing experiences of Cmdr. Henry Caldera (the great Jonathan Banks), who runs the Rocket Propulsion Laboratory and is obsessed with a mysterious device that Jo managed to bring home — a device with the usual “this can change EVERYTHING” ramifications.

Jonathan Banks stands in a light-colored wood paneled room as he wears a jacket, loosened tie and eyeglasses in one of his dual roles on "Constellation."

Jonathan Banks plays a dual role, as a lab commander and his astronaut brother.

Then there’s Henry’s brother “Bud” Caldera (also Banks), a Buzz Aldrin-type former astronaut who once walked the moon but is now a bitter alcoholic traveling the convention circuit and fending off questions about what REALLY happened on his mission. (In the world of “Constellation,” Bud was on Apollo 18; in real life, the Apollo 18 mission was scrapped by NASA). Are Henry and Bud two different people, or the same person, living in alternative universes? And what’s the deal with the Russian space chief Irene Lysenko (Barbara Sukowa), who might or might not have been one of the first women in space back in the 1960s?

As we go back and forth through the looking-glass (it’s surely no coincidence Jo’s daughter is named Alice), “Constellation” at times feels more like a ghost story than a sci-fi thriller — but there are so many occasions when we can’t trust that what we’re seeing onscreen is really, really REAL. Thankfully, the finale provides some legitimately earned answers, while also keeping things open for a potential second season. With a challenging premise, smart writing and strong performances, “Constellation” is well worth the eight-episode investment.
