“Ugly produce” a is term for aesthetically unpleasing food that usually goes unsold in lieu of more cosmetically appetizing fruits and vegetables.
Bruised, blemished, or misshapen apples, double-headed carrots, or irregularly sized produce are examples of ugly produce. Not pretty to look at, but just as healthy as advertisement-worthy fruits and vegetables.
Ugly produce is usually wasted on the harvesting and retail level.
That is because American consumers are more likely to buy a pretty apple instead of an ugly one. There is a new movement to make Americans, and the world, aware of the needless waste of ugly produce.
