AN UNUSUAL-shaped strawberry caused s-creams of laughter when a Dartford mother found it growing on her vegetable plot.

Carole Collen discovered the strawberry resembling the shape of a penis growing in her garden in East Hill.

The 52-year-old told News Shopper: “I thought oh my word!

“I showed the family and they thought it was very funny.

“Who would have thought it would grow like that? It is just puzzling.

“We were quite shocked.”

The mother-of-two added: “Strawberries don’t usually last long.

"It is probably the wrong phrase to use but it is getting smaller.

“The kids think it is hilarious. We all had a good old chuckle.”

Mrs Collen, who also grows tomatoes and cucumbers in her garden, says each member of the family will be taking a bite from the phallic shaped fruit.
