Moodubelle, 13 April 2011: Nature, sometimes,  manifests itself in strange ways. This is exactly what happened when Jagdish Prabhu of Prabhu hotel, to his amazement found a sweet-potato that he had purchased from William Saldanha of Kappandakarya on 7 April 2011, bearing the shape of Ganapati on one side and that of the cobra on the other. Immediately, he sent the ‘miracle’ sweet-potato to Anil Studio.




Vegetables usually grow into an unusual shape due to environmental conditions. Damage to one part of the vegetable can cause the growth to slow in that area while the rest grows at the normal rate. When a root vegetable is growing and the tip is damaged it can sometimes split, forming multiple roots attached at one point. If a plant is in the primordium (embryonic development) stage damage to the growing vegetable can cause more extreme mutations.
