In a startling discovery scientists attached to the European Space agency have found what they believe to be Tomatoes growing on the moon near to the plains of tranquility.
After going through reams of data Professor Fodder of the European Center for space and strategic exploration agency (ECSTE) will announce to the worlds scientific community that plants the size of trees are growing on the moon. Through carbon and infrared detection equipment on the international space station they have identified these plants as giant Tomato plants and it is estimated that each tomato fruit weighs in at the astounding weight of 7 Kilos each.
Talking with reporters from the “National Enquirer” Professor Fodder said “how these plants got there we have no idea, but our initial suspicions fall on Neil Armstrong.” Neil Armstrong a keen gardener was the first person to set foot on the moon and his first foot print is quite close to where these giant plants are located.

Neil Armstrong when interviewed has admitted to carrying a small packet of mixed seeds with him on his historic journey to the moon. The scientific community headed by Professor Fodder visited Mr Armstrong in the garden of his Texas house to clarify the National Enquirers story, but in an unfortunate twist NASA has told Neil Armstrong to be quite and not divulge what if any sort of tomatoes seeds he took with him to the moon. In another twist Heinz has offered the scientists a substantial sum of money for all rights to the giant plants.
This is where it is believed Neil Armstrong planted the Tomatoes
The world awaits next Fridays announcement with baited breathe.
