Giant strawberries the size of an egg and big enough to share have gone on sale in time for Valentine's Day.
The Spanish-grown King strawberry is being sold by Marks and Spencer.
The retailer says the fruit is at least 30% bigger than the average strawberry, and sweeter, making it the "perfect treat for sharing with someone special".
The retail chain's fruit expert Bill Davies said: "These jumbo King strawberries are perfect for two, delicious on their own or made extra special by dipping in melted chocolate for the ultimate Valentine's treat."
The introduction of giant strawberries is part of a trend at M&S for unusually-sized fruit and follows the success of the tiny 'Tiddly Pomme' apple and the giant 'Satsumo' satsuma
King strawberries are available in stores nationwide now for £6.99.
