Lady Apple

Speaking of apples, as I seem to be doing often right now, someone brought me an apple at work the other day. I've never seen anything like it before - and I don't know whether you have either - so I thought I would take some pictures of it :)

Here the apple looks normal:

But then when you stick it next to a jumbo-sized paperclip, you can see it most certainly is not!

Or when you compare it to a stack of post-it notes:

Or if you put it in the midst of the jungle that is the out-of-control plant on my desk:

They told me it was considered a "lady apple" and they grow like this! I didn't know how to react when I first got the apple...

But then I decided to eat it anyway...

Yum.
