Wonky!


The hospital where I work is opposite a big Morrison's supermarket.   One of my colleagues discovered the wonky avocados, a snip at £1.56 for a bag of four or five of them and we all followed suit like lemmings.  I popped over yesterday evening and bought two bags of them.  For I love an avocado but normally balk at the price.  I threw a bag of wonky lemons into my basket too.  They're eighty pence for four of them.

As you can see they're a bit gnarly on the outside. They don't taste any different from the 'perfect fruit'.  As Morrisons say they are beautiful on the inside.  And guess what?  I not in the habit of eating the skins anyway!

  2. It's great that supermarkets are finally selling produce that they would previously have refused from the growers/farmers.

    1. Yes - as you can see there's nothing wrong with it - except you might have to skate around the lemon rind with the grater if you needed it for a recipe. xx

  4. At 68 years old, and raised in the post war 1950s, I find the idea of wonky veg puzzling and sad in equal measure. To me they are fruit and veg and that’s how they have grown in their natural state. However, I am grateful if calling them wonky and selling them cheaper stops them going to landfill! Enjoy the avocados, lemons and anything else you can find.

    1. It's actually made me view the perfect supermarket veg as a bit disturbing! xx

    1. Lobby your supermarkets. It's a win-win situation. xx

  6. I don't understand this British fascination with perfect fruit and veg. We just buy whatever is on the display. Very little produce is wrapped in cellophane/plastic like it is in UK supermarkets.

    1. Bewilering isn't it? And slightly sinister. xx
