Lada Sunat "Peter Peppers"
Hari ni aku terima satu email company daripada seseorang yang fowardkan email mengenai Lada, terkezut aku tengok keunikan Lada tersebut, 1stly masa tengok ingatkan superimpose tapi ini memang FAKTA, Lada ini memang berasal daripada garden yang di gelar "Peter Peppers". Ini detail daripada email tersebut.
The world’s most offensive-looking plant
These are actual peppers from a garden. They are called 'Peter Peppers'..
When I first saw its picture, I thought it’s just another photoshopped hoax, but digging deeper, I was surprised to discover that it’s a real plant, usually called the Peter Pepper, scientific name capsicum annuum var. annuum ‘Peter’.
It’s native to Louisiana and Texas .
It’s been called many other names, including Chilli Willy and Penis Chilli; and has been judged “Most Pornographic Pepper” by Organic Gardening Magazine...
Not surprising, since it looks like so:
Apparently it has always been grown more as an ornamental thing, rather than to be eaten, although it’s perfectly edible.
By the way, a farmer who specializes in growing them says they can grow up to 18" long! :shock:
Sort of brings a tear to your eyes, doesn't it?
Mother Nature must be playing a prank on mankind
(and womankind as well) when such extraordinary vegetables appear.
Heuheuheu... macam² dunia sekarang ni...
