These 'alien eggs' are not what they seem

Images showing a field full of objects resembling eggs from the 'Alien' movie franchise have recently gone viral.
The pictures, which were posted up on Twitter by a farm worker from Japan, show rows of 'eggs' sitting on the ground in a field with white tendrils protruding from the bottom of them.

It goes without saying that these weird objects bear more than a passing resemblance to the alien eggs first encountered by the crew of the Nostromo in Ridley Scott's iconic 1979 science-fiction horror movie Alien which starred Sigourney Weaver as protagonist Ellen Ripley.

Fortunately however, the 'eggs' are in no danger of spawning facehuggers - they are in fact Chinese cabbages growing in a field on a farm in Japan.
The reason they look the way they do is because they have been left to wither in the winter air.

"At this time, be careful with the 'alien eggs' in the field because they are Chinese cabbage," the uploader - @dAiTaI0524 - wrote alongside the images.

It didn't take long for his Tweet to rack up tens of thousands of views.
