My thought

Specially nowadays we are facing food prices gone up and a shortage of foods, we should not waste any food at all. I am more than happy to buy those vegetables and fruits in fanny shapes and sizes. Nothing wrong with them. It is a very good idea to sell them. Sometimes rules and regulations prevents from selling fine food.
