A DARLING Downs mother has been left horrified after an orange she cut for her kids' lunchboxes bizarrely turned purple overnight.

Nine News reports that Chinchilla mum-of-five Angela Postle had sent oranges away for testing after one changed colour overnight when sliced and left in a bowl.

Mrs Postle told Nine News she returned the fruit to the grocery store because she was concerned it posed a health risk.

She said despite the purple colouring, the fruit smelt and felt like an orange.

Woolworths confirmed the fruit had been returned due to the discolouration.
