This week’s theme for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is dis·tort·ed

Distorted - Life is full of surprises!

Distorted - Life is full of surprises!


dis·tort·ed: twisted; deformed; misshapen.

I grew this “distorted” tomato from seed, and although its appearance was misshapen and unappetizing when I bit into the fruit it was sweet and delicious. How often do we initially judge people by their appearance and not by their inner self?

    • I felt guilty because I nearly disgarded this tomato based purely on its appearance.
      I like Ronnie’s comment below. sums it up well
      “not judging people by their appearance – you should never judge a book by its cover, or a tomato by its skin!”

  3. Excellent! You came up trumps in the end. How very true not judging people by their appearance – you should never judge a book by its cover, or a tomato by its skin! 🙂

  4. Great entry for the challenge! Had you discarded that tomato, you would never have known it’s sweetness. Just goes to show – first appearances can be very deceiving.

  7. That’s pretty wild and a little scary. If a tomato can become so distorted, what about human beings with our great complexity?

    It still served it’s function though. Good point.

    Dear PiP, I hope you saved those seeds, its an heirloom variety called “Voyage”. If not you can get them off ebay. They look weird but taste great.
