Had a great time harvesting my chillies yesterday and came across this one with ears.

I,ve grown tomatoes for several decades now and regularly in past years used to get tomatoes with tiny Male appendages on them but realise now I haven,t had any for years either from the supermarket or home grown. I suppose EU regulations and supermarket policies have stopped supermarkets from selling imperfect fruit and veg or possibly tomato varieties are now less prone to developing imperfections.

Personally I think it quite interesting to get the occasional veggie misfits. Root veg normally produce the best ones. All part of the fun of home growing and lays a popular class at fruit and veg shows. :D

My Black Krim have had little noses (or tails). There is something about wonky fruit that makes you smile & feel kind of proud about as they don't look like the shop bought to prove they are home grown! A bit of a badge of honour so to speak!
