The erotic root veg was spotted by shopper Ally Hobbs a supermarket in Darwin, Australia.

The shape of the veggie mimics that of a human penis, with a bulbous end looking like testicles attached to a long smooth shaft with a coned tip, which was further emphasised by the fact it was past its just-picked best.

“It was the last one there so everybody had thought the same thing as us, that it wasn’t very tasty.”

Ally added that the lonely veggie was perhaps a tad smaller than the average penis, which might have been why it was overlooked.

Playing with the solitary vegetable clearly got Ally in the mood for some delicious root veg, and she admitted she satisfied her craving with a bag of sweet potato crisps.
