cat face
 n.— «Brown strawberries, almost-black strawberries, lumpy, warty cat-faced strawberries: They darken the fields of A.G. Kawamura, outnumbering the ripe, red berries by two to one in some places.…Temperatures dipped to about 30 degrees Fahrenheit the last week of December, not quite low enough to kill entire plants, they said. Winds at times were strong enough to dent, or “cat-face” fruit.» —“Irvine farmers examine effects of chill on strawberries” by Melissa Balmain Weiner Orange County Register Jan. 14, 1988.
