Farmer discovers rudely shaped potato and now wants to preserve it

Metro

Yes, it’s base humour. Yes, we know we need to grow up. And, yes, it’s puerile. But the farmer that discovered this peculiar-looking vegetable couldn’t resist a giggle (and, unfortunately for our mothers, neither could we).

Kevin Stokes and his colleagues at Farndon Fields Farm Shop in Leicestershire were apparently left in hysterics when they first saw the plump potato.

‘Kevin, the managing director, brought it into the office and everyone fell around laughing,’ admitted Nicola Stokes, who is in charge of marketing (obviously) at the shop near Market Harborough.

‘He’d been sorting the potatoes which had been harvested and found this. It was hilarious.

‘We’ve been growing potatoes here for more than 30 years. We’ve had some odd shapes before but nothing like this.’

Ms Stokes added the oddly shaped vegetable could eventually be auctioned off for charity.
