Jeremy Corbyn looked a tad bemused as he was handed a huge marrow during a visit to Brighton.
The giant vegetable was gifted to him as he toured a business centre before his first party conference as Labour leader.
Images of Corbyn holding the marrow led to comparisons with former Labour leadership hopeful David Miliband, who was widely mocked after being photographed with a banana at the party conference in 2008.
Green-fingered Corbyn is a vegetarian and may well have appreciated the size of the specimen as he grows his own produce on his allotment in north London.
But he left the Brighton visit empty-handed as the marrow found its way into the hands of Observer journalist Daniel Boffey, who joked it would be "eBay gold".
