HALF GREEN, HALF RED, ALL DELICIOUS!

Ken Morrish of Colaton Raleigh, Devon was astounded when he grew an apple that was half-red and half-green. This genetic mutation is called an "extreme mutation" because the odds of it occurring are literally a million to one. The resulting fruit is known as a chimera in which two different kinds of cells turn into one organism.

It is unlikely that this will be a recurring mutation, but Ken Morrish is going to be on the lookout for another one next year.
