The Titanic Tomato

over-sized fruit over-sized fruit

You've heard of the Big Apple and the Giant Peach but Area 51 have harvested another full-fat fruit...the titanic tomato!

The oversized tomato, standing at around four feet tall, was built to order to form part of a new feature to stand inside a nationally-known restaurant.

Sculpted from polystyrene and then sprayed and coated with an epoxy resin, the formidable fruit was then supplied to the customer fixed to a metal spike which was to be securely bolted into the restaurant itself.

The contract allowed for the client to finish off the feature by painting it on site.
