Whether dipped in chocolate or bobbing around in a glass of champagne, you can`t beat strawberries as the food of love for Valentine`s Day.
So could there by anything more romantic than a strawberry that had grown in the shape of heart?
That’s exactly what five year-old Sophie Seitler found when she opened a new punnet of strawberries after asking her father, Martin, to buy her favourite fruit while doing the supermarket shop.
The heart shaped fruit – formed by a Siamese-type joining of three strawberries – is about the size of an adult fist and was discovered in a £2.74 punnet bought from Tesco in Cheetham, Manchester.
“I couldn’t believe it when Sophie pulled this enormous heart-shaped strawberry out of the pack, it just looked so strange,” says Martin, 45, an accountant. “At first I didn`t even think it was real.”
In fact the shape put the little girl off eating it and instead she handed it back to her father., who ate most of it and said that it tasted perfectly normal.
It seems in the absence of any suitors for Sophie , her heart clearly does belong to Daddy.
