Ranbir, a farmer in Haryana’s Jind district has claimed that he is growing potatoes and tomatoes on the same plants in his field simultaneously.
According to Ranbir, six months ago he had planted some potatoes that he found on a road. But soon he found flowers blossomed from the plants and it eventually turned into fruits of green colour. The fruits have sour taste and look like tomatoes. On lifting the plants, potatoes were found in bunches of four to six.
“Initially we didn’t believe but on visiting Ranbir’s field we found tomatoes growing on the same plant as potatoes” confirmed other farmer Deepak.
