LA-based produce company Melissa's unveiled peculiar hybrid grapes called the Witch Fingers Grapes. As the name suggests, the fruiting berries are shaped like long, pointy fingers. Melissa's describes the elongated shape as "playful and elegant." This is a new and exclusive artisan hybrid fruit, says a representative from Melissa's. These grapes may raise questions at wine and cheese events, that's for sure.

Contrary to the traditional full round or oval grapes, these are closer in shape to chili peppers. But despite their unusual appearance, these grapes taste super sweet.

This hybrid fruit is an example of how progressive technology is also influencing the farming industry. Not only was the flavor of the grapes manipulated, but also the shape and style of them. The grower of Witch Fingers is said to be devoted to coming up with unconventional grape varieties.
