To stop the excessive waste of fruit and vegetables, growers are being encouraged to sell their "seconds". Fruit with a strange shape, or an unusual discolouration will not be on sale at some venues. Would you buy it?

Yes. I buy my fruit from a local orchard and if there is "seconds" available I will buy them. I also grow some of my own vegies so unusual shapes and sized produce is generally expected in my house!
LOL...I don't discriminate! :)

I sure would buy it.
Sure would. Anything to reduce waste.

Strawberry seconds are awesome! Great for freezing and yes..buy them! Really helps on the budget!
Absolutely. I find the obsession with fruit and veg looking perfect utterly ridiculous. I grew up in a very poor and very frugal family, my mum grew a lot of food and the rest we bought at the end of the day from the greengrocer at knockdown prices because otherwise she would throw them away.... but they were perfectly fine to eat! I can't abide waste.....
I buy vegetables and fruits from a local market and there is a huge price difference compared to Supermarket. The only difference I see is that they are out of shape. I don't mind. If they are fresh, I am buying them !

Sure, I'd be happy to. Unfortunately they're often not available where I shop.
I certainly would. Without even a second though.
Yes, for sure, Reduce waste and costs. They still taste good and sometimes ever fresher than being stored for many months by the big supermarkets!
