Woman's X-Rated Aubergine Received In 'Odd-Shaped Vegetables' Box Goes Viral

Woman's X-Rated Aubergine Received In 'Odd-Shaped Vegetables' Box Goes Viral

An X-rated aubergine a woman received in an 'oddly-shaped vegetables' box has gone viral.

When Becca Wright, from London, UK, ordered her fruit and veg delivery from Oddbox, she knew to expect misshapen groceries. As the name suggests, the company helps to fight food waste by rescuing odd-shaped and surplus crops from farms and distributing them to unfussy consumers.

However, Becca got more than she bargained for when she received a quite exceptional aubergine in her delivery.

Sharing the fine specimen on Twitter, she said: "I refuse to believe this aubergine that arrived in my veg box was about to be thrown away; I would pay premium prices for this."


Clearly, she was not alone in admiring the erotic aubergine, with more than 205,000 people liking her tweet. And rightly so; even among aubergines - a vegetable that has come to symbolise penis in modern messaging culture - this one is extraordinarily phallic.

Now, Becca has developed somewhat of an attachment to the veg that brought her viral fame.

The public affairs manager told The Mirror: "I really liked the ethos behind it and lockdown seemed as good time as any to start experimenting with different varieties of veg, especially stuff that would otherwise be thrown away, and the convenience of having the box delivered was a big bonus.


"My first thought was that it looked like Mr Potato Head - it was crying out to have some eyes added.

"The challenge now is deciding whether to cook it - it's brought too much entertainment over the last few days that I would almost feel guilty."


Peter Mortlock, Quality Coordinator at Oddbox, said: "We love seeing customer photos, and Becca's certainly made us laugh.

"Each week we rescue odd produce straight from farms that could have otherwise gone to waste just because it was 'too' small, 'too' large or not the right 'shape' to meet supermarket specifications.

"This fruit and veg is as delicious and fresh, just shaped as nature intended. You never know what shape you'll get, which makes it even more fun to eat, and as Twitter users have demonstrated, they can occasionally look a bit rude.

"Regardless of the size or shape though, it is just as tasty and fresh as 'normal' shaped veg, as it's been grown to the highest of standards."
