A collection of plant oddities found in my own back yard (or yours) updated as more strangeness is unearthed.
Here’s freaky zuke fetuses on a zucchini that Annie’s Granny grew.
Here’s an ear of corn that split into two as it grew.
I ran across this at Jimmy Cracked Corn. Warning, it’s a little x-rated.
This is a lettuce leaf that the stem branched. Instead of one leaf, you have two.
This is a leaf from a cherry tomato trained to a single stem with fully grown suckers from the leaf surface instead of the crotch between the leaf and the stem. I’ve been told that it could be a result of heavy pruning (this was when the plant was very young, not much pruning had been done). I’ve never seen it and it seemed weird to me.
- This is a cherry tomato that the last two fruits on the truss fused together. I didn’t realize they were fused until I was getting ready to eat it.
- Here is a tomato that grew in a teardrop shape instead of round. It was grown on a tomato plant that was planted too early, had cold exposure. The plant only produced two more tomatoes and eventually got pulled.
