Just like humans, fruits and vegetables also have a cycle of life, filled with constant growth and changes. And, just like humans, their populations also have some weird fruits that don't fit in within the norms. Alterations in farming technology and methods, GMOs, and other factors can alter plants' appearances so much, they might start looking like something from Chernobyl.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of terrifyingly cool photos of awesome fruits and funny vegetables that proves how easily the common become bizarre. From strawberries sprouting seeds while they're still on the plant, to randomly blooming artichokes, and forever growing vegetables that seem never to stop expanding these plants would surprise even the most experienced gardeners. Scroll down to vote for your favorite flora Frankensteins, and feel free to upload your own photos of unexpected seed germination.

If you live in the South, put it in a planter, and when it takes off, plant the entire thing into the ground, in your back yard, and you will have an avocado tree which will pay you dividends later on. :D

Hmm I always thought it is kind of common to find peppers like that. From what I know, those aren't seeds sprouting and new vegetables growing, just an ingrown parts of the very same bell pepper you're holding.

This one hasn't sprouted from the seeds inside though. This is just a slightly deformed capsicum. If it was from the seeds it would be the plant not the fruit.

Oh wow! Obviously this bell pepper is a natural germinator. Save all the seeds and plant the ones already growing and enjoy more bell peppers later on. :D
