Strange Fruit

Our vegetable garden was quite neglected this past summer and still, we managed to harvest some good fruit. Here are some photos of the most interesting fruit--some were meant to grow this way, others were not.

A tomato with a horn (Julia Child variety):
Horned Tomato

A conjoined tomato (Homer Fike's Yellow Oxheart variety. This tomato probably weighed about 3-5 lbs!):

A striped tomato (don't know the variety but it is a Roma tomato):
Striped Roma Tomatoes

Round cucumbers (Double Yield variety--not supposed to grow round but short and chubby; these didn't grow much after they reached this size):

Purple carrots (this variety is called Dragon Carrot. The inside is bright orange and just a beautiful combination of colors!):
Purple Carrots

And just for fun, the carrot tops:
