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.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of terrifying pics of fruits and veggies that proves how easily the common become the bizarre. From strawberry seeds sprouting while still on the plant, to randomly blooming artichokes, 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.

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
