I am disturbed by this.  But impressed by this.

I know they do all kinds of stuff to our food, but this apple was huge.

I tried to place some everyday items (including a business card) by it, so you'll get an idea of the scale.

Also, I think I have fingers that would rank as a 6 on the length scale if 5 is average for a woman of my height (and 10 on that scale is Edward Scissorhands style). 

Also, older picture, but since I work from home on Fridays, I usually eat a baked potato for lunch.  One of my favorite foods and I always tell my husband to buy the biggest one he can find.  I actually put on the shopping list that I want a baking potato "bigger than my face." 

That was me trying to show him that this was very close, but still actually slightly smaller than my face. 

I think in the end, I'm not vehemently opposed to unnaturally large produce. 


  1. That is definitely a massive apple! And that potato tho ...

    I love going apple picking in the fall and grabbing different size apples from different varieties because there are subtleties in all of those variations that are worth exploring!

    Not all larger fruit / vegetables are a bad / GMO thing ... much of it is a better understanding of what makes things grow, more efficient planting/pruning/growing strategies, and so on.

    Whatever it is ... it is delicious and I also approve :)

  2. Ha ha ha! You crack me up!!!

  3. Creepy food! I typically buy apples from a local farm on the way to Carlos' school. Even during the off season they feature local apples so they are never huge, but I am always kind of surprised when I see the apples in the regular supermarket.

    I love the potato pic. For some reason it reminded me of that show Home Improvement with Tim Allen. The neighbor's face was never seen because there was always something strategically placed in its way.

  4. i love giant honey crisp apples, except for the fact that i can't use my handy-dandy apple slicer/corer on them because they're too big. i haven't had a baked potato in forever. jason's deli has some really big potatoes
