A PECULIAR-LOOKING tomato was unearthed in a Horsham back yard this week.

A Horsham man was surprised to find one of his tomatoes – the first he has picked for the season – resembling several cherry tomatoes growing off each other.

The rest of the plant’s fruit remains green and unripe.

The man’s wife brought the unusual find into the Wimmera Mail-Times office.

She was amazed by the shape of it. 

“He brought it into me and said, ‘Look at this’,” the woman said. 

​“He didn’t even see the tomato when he first looked because it was at the very bottom of the bush.

“I call it the pick of the bunch. I think it might be one of the roma tomatoes but I’m not sure.”

The woman said the couple would use the tomato in a meal once it ripened a little more.
