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 individuals 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.

From strawberry seeds sprouting while still on the plant, to randomly blooming artichokes, these plants would surprise even the most experienced gardeners.
