Donna had moved to quarantine with his boyfriend but did not think of the potatoes she had bought in March. As the 22-year-old returned to her apartment last month, she was terrified to find the mutant potatoes with long tentacles spread all over her place.
Donna Porée, from France, had bought a bag of potatoes in March with the intention of cooking them for dinner. The 22-year-old woman then moved to his boyfriend's place as the pandemic hit the globe and lockdown was imposed in the city.
Upon returning to her apartment in Caen, the terrifying surpise was waiting for her.
Donna had not expected that the bag of potatoes would grow tentacles and spread across her small flat in the most horrifying way.
"As I opened the front door, I noticed a strange shape at the back of the kitchen. As the light was off and shutters down, I didn't realise it was the potatoes. It was only after opening the shutters that I took note of this extraordinary sight," she described her bizarre experience.
"I was terrified at first, but after realising what it was I laughed a lot and shared a video of the plant on Snapchat. My friends couldn't stop laughing. They found the whole situation unbelievable," she added.
The communications manager decided to cut the shoots and remove the mutant potatoes but it was not so easy. "I wanted to extract the bag of potatoes from the counter-top seals, but it wasn't easy. The shoots had fixed in place in the joints and were difficult to remove. I ended up having to cut some of the shoots out with scissors and I had to fill in the holes they made," she told.
She shared photos of the scary view with the internet world and her posts gained 195,000 likes and more than 61,000 retweets.
