A WOMAN has posted a hilarious snap of a very rude-looking pear that grew in her garden.
Julie Hamilton discovered the fruit as she was gathering in the crop at her home in Scartho, Lincs, and shared an image online.
The 58-year-old senior healthcare assistant, wrote: “I’ve had some really weird-looking pears off my tree this year and I’m not sure why.
“Plus there’s not half as many as I normally get off my tree.
“But I thought I’d post the pictures of this one for fun.”
Syed Shumi Hassan commented: “Nature has a funny sense of humour.”
Kerry Elliott suggested: “You could put it in a fruit cock-tail” and added a winking emoji.
Sue Contestabile wrote: “Nice pair.”
Robert Seeney added: “Wow that pear’s got a pair…”
On Julie’s post other gardeners added images of their own questionable crops. Among them were another couple of versatile looking carrots.
Sara May Dixon posted a picture writing: “Some homegrown carrots… we had fun naming ours.”
Her image showed some very odd looking carrots, a few of which looked like legs with another small growth in between them.
Julie Twigg also posted an image of a longer, firmer looking carrot.
Speaking today, Julie said: “I was saying to my husband that we had some strange looking pears this year for some reason. But when I picked it this one I couldn’t believe it and what it resembled.
“It’s actually a conference pear.
Whilst naughty vegetables are not the norm they have frequently been a topic of hilarity for hungry shoppers and gardeners.
In March, a Morrison’s shopper was stunned to find a carrot which looked like a penis and legs inside a bag of “wonky carrots” that he bought from the supermarket.
