FOR MOST people, picking fruit is a relatively unsurprising pastime, but one woman was shocked to discover a strawberry shaped like a penis.
Carole Collen, of Dartford in Kent, came across the x-rated fruit in her garden, and took the saucy berry inside to show her family, before snapping the strawberry and sending the pictures to her friends.
The mother-of-two recalled how she burst out laughing when she found the fruit, saying: “When I saw it I just thought ‘Oh my God.’
“It immediately reminded me of a man’s bits and I just had to take a photo.”
Carole, 52, explained that she initially believed a snail must have eaten into the fruit, adding: “But it hasn’t - it’s all natural.”
“It’s funny how a strawberry can grow like that, and my family couldn’t stop laughing.”
Carole added: “I did think it was a bit small. It would be nice if it grew a bit bigger.”
The professional housekeeper plans to keep the strawberry in the fridge for a charity raffle - a far cry from the Brazilian gardener who, in 2011, was charging visitors $9 for pictures and $12 for video footage of her penis-shaped passion fruits.
