Take a look at this fine specimen:
Don't ask me what was going on with this guy (and please don't ask me why I refer to it as a "guy" instead of a "gal"), but I picked him, along with another four or five somewhat-ripe eggplants before we got our first freeze last Thursday night.
Stranger things have happend here at Krazo Acres. But this has got to be the strangest looking vegetable we've had. So far.
