The Man Tomato

Readers of my New Zealand blog, aussiesinauckland, will know I'm a lover of oddly shaped fruit and veg. In fact, in New Zealand, such pornographic produce could fetch big prices on TradeMe, the Kiwi equivalent of ebay. Like, sometimes even a few dollars!


So you can imagine my dilemna when I came across this little beauty - a Man Tomato, surely the holy grail of suggestively shaped fruit. Should I eat it, or put it on ebay and perhaps make my millions?

Even better, the rounded tomato with its proud attachment is still Christmassy green, meaning it should ripen by the time the Big Man In Red comes for a visit.

The perfect gift for the person who has everything!

 Quite splendid really...

I don't think you'd need to worry about getting two presents like this ...

LOL I had a suggestively shaped eggplant. Who knew that I could have put it on trade me! :P

That would certainly get me eating more vegies... oh wow, now I sound like a tart.

Sadly, I won't be making my fortune. Miss 7 broke the er, man part, off the tomato and now the appendage looks rather small. I think there's something in that for all of us, don't you?

I'm going to get one of these for my sister. Her vibrator just broke and this seems so much more natural anyway.

Oh God, I remember your "weirdly-shaped fruit" posts in Auckland...I loved them! I was also always really bemused since I never saw any such fruit when I was out in the supermarket...you must have an eye for them! Hee! Hee!
