Curly cucumbers, crooked carrots and mottled mushrooms - odd-looking fruit and vegetables are making a comeback as 20-year-old EU rules are lifted.
Marketing standards for 26 types of produce have been scrapped, in a drive to cut EU bureaucracy.
The standards will remain in place for 10 of the most popular types. But with an appropriate label shops will be able to sell "ugly" specimens of these too.
Well, most of them anyways. Some things you just really have to wonder!
There was a thread on this a while back so this is an update. A positive one.
