Siamese cucumbers– what are the odds?


COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WKBN/WYTV) — Here’s something for you — imagine going out to your garden and finding siamese cucumbers.

Brian Varesac — near Columbiana found not just one, but TWO sets of the conjoined vegetable.

He’s gardened his entire life and it’s the first time he’s ever seen such a sight.

In fact — it’s so rare – horticulturalists say it’s about as common as a woman giving birth to Siamese twins.

Those odds — one in 200,000.
