Bizarre! Haryana farmer claims potatoes, tomatoes growing on same plants

Jind: A farmer in Haryana's Jind district has claimed that potatoes and tomatoes are growing on the same plants in his field simultaneously.

Ranbir, a farmer who hails from Ludana village, said that about six months ago he had planted some potatoes that he found on a road.

Some two weeks ago, flowers blossomed from the plants which eventually turned into green fruits and look like tomatoes, he said.

The fruits have sour taste and look like tomatoes, Ranbir said, adding that on lifting the plants, potatoes were found in bunches of four to six.

"Initially we didn't believe but on visiting Ranbir's field we found tomatoes growing on the same plant as potatoes," PTI quoted another farmer as saying.
