Chinese Fleeceflower:  It’s a plant with a very interesting characteristic.  Chinese Fleeceflower, also known as Chinese knockweed, has roots that look like little people.

It appears just as it was when the plant was pulled from the ground, according to the man who spotted it on a vegetable stall in a town in China’s eastern Shandong province.

The man, named Fan, was so taken with his find he is said to have paid 600 yuan, more than £40, to buy it.

Curious visitors now travel from miles around to see the foot-long veggie couple on display at his home.

The fleeceflower is a favourite dietary supplement in Asia where its boiled extract is believed to reduce cholesterol and fight heart disease.

The root is also sold as a diet food to help reduce obesity.
