Hilariously misshapen fruit and vegetables can take the form of animals, or seem to be doing things that humans do, or feel. Yet what gives these fruits and vegetables their quirky shapes?
The answer is simple. It's science! There's a fair few reasons why a fruit or vegetable can grow into an odd shape, but the main reason is damage to its scar tissue. If during its early growth it receives scarring, it can halt growth and cause a deformity.
