It looks too cute to eat but there are doubts as to whether this amusing tomato will float in a bath tub.

The little fella was grown in Ian Wilson’s garden, in Caithness Road, Stamford.

Ian, 68, said: “I noticed it when it was green and thought ‘that’s interesting, it looks like a duck, I wonder if it floats in the bath?’ I’ve never seen anything like it.”

The fruit could well be a sibling of Eric Hinchliffe’s tomato, grown in his garden in Bourne, pictured in the Mercury on October 12.
