strange persimmon 7x5.5

My friend Pollyanna put this very strange persimmon in my mailbox at school. I'm not sure if this type of thing is common among persimmons or not. It's certainly the oddest looking fruit I've ever seen.

Wow! Those colors really pop! Yep, it's a weird one all right. I love my persimmon tree. It gives me about a dozen fruits every year, which is just right. I hadn't seen one as bizarre as that before. What a creative tree.

Looks like you might have painted a Pacific Northwest tree octopus.

It's orange, it has tentacles, and I don't want to eat it!

The strange shape of the fruit is a glaring sign of global warming! What else could explain this strange example of fruition?

Dave asked "What else could explain...?"

Ionospheric heating from H.A.A.R.P. could cause that.
