Roughly one in four Australians - and probably many other people around the globe - won't buy fruits and vegetables which do not look good. Harris Farm Markets have now decided to sell them at a reduced price to prevent these "non-calibrated" produce to go to waste. And frankly, if you are making a soup or jams or a roast of lamb with roasted vegetables, one should be more concerned about how they were grown that how they look like. Organic vegetables in particular have a tendency to grow wilder and have funny shapes - see photos in my previous article. About a year ago, The Youth Food Movement organised Crop Fest with a number of other organisations like Oz Harvest to do something about it and made a video of it that I have just discovered via the website of Studio Neon, a very "outside of the square" food, photography and other creative arts space in Sydney. - see photo below. And here is the video!
