Got strange looking strawberries?

Gardening Australia has had people asking what is happening to their strawberries. It's a condition called vivipary and occurs when the seeds on the surface of the berry’s skin germinate. It often happens in spring and there really isn't much you can do about it, but you can plant the strawberries to grow new plants!

@greygardener - They remind me of "The Day of the Triifids".
