Food :: amazing spaghetti tree harvest

I never knew spaghetti grew on trees, did you? Sheesh, you learn something new everyday. Only in Switzerland will you find this amazing Spaghetti Tree! I wonder if it grows whole wheat or durham semolina ;)

Here's how spaghetti is harvested, farm fresh and straight off the tree...

Is it a hoax? "In 1957 the respected BBC news show Panorama announced that thanks to a very mild winter and the virtual elimination of the dreaded spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. It accompanied this announcement with footage of Swiss peasants pulling strands of spaghetti down from trees. Huge numbers of viewers were taken in. Many called the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti tree. To this the BBC diplomatically replied that they should "place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best."
