"Scary" apples make Halloween debut
Tue Oct 22, 9:27 AM ET

LONDON (Reuters) - Stencilling, long the preserve of interior decorators, has been adapted by apple growers to create fruit with Halloween designs on their skins.


They fixed food-friendly plastic stencils of pumpkins and witches on a English apple variety called Falstaff, before the fruit had ripened.

Once exposed to sunlight, the apple's skin turned red while the part covered by the stencil remained green.

The result is a ready-made prop for October 31, said supermarket chain Waitrose which is stocking the enhanced fruit.

The store said other designs, such as love hearts for Valentine's Day (news - web sites), are planned.

Ok, I like these. Question is, why didn't Martha already do this? I'm so disappointed with how she has fallen behind with the latest trends. LOL
