When you see oversized fruits and vegetables in a grocery store, your first instinct should be to steer clear of them. Usually, large sizes mean that the fruit or veggie has been genetically modified, and are often quite tasteless.

However, any experienced home gardener will tell you that when it comes to growing veggies and fruits yourself, it’s perfectly normal – and pretty awesome – to get a humongous piece of produce from time to time. In fact, it’s all part of Mother Nature’s complex and fascinating game.

Now, some of these gigantic garden spoils are perfectly delicious – for examply, the size of a carrot likely won’t affect it’s taste and they’re all pretty epic to behold. The giant pear looks like such a boss.
