But surprisingly, a lot of perfectly edible, oddly shaped (some might even call it ugly) produce never even gets to the store. In fact, almost 26 percent of all produce is thrown away before it makes it to market, largely because it doesn't meet the cosmetic standards of large grocers.
There are even campaigns to get these stores to start carrying the "ugly" produce, like the #WhatTheFork campaign. And after taking a look at some of these totally adorable "ugly" fruits and veggies, I'm convinced they should be in stores too.
And potatoes love me.

This pineapple has gone wild! Just imagine how many piña coladas you could make with one of these.
Is it a rooster? A calm duck carrying a peach? Either way, it's pretty adorable.
These yellow squash, craning their necks toward the sun, are clearly ducks in disguise.
To me this looks like a strawberry riding a chubby winged strawberry Pegasus. Aka I would buy it in a second.
This astronaut carrot proves that ugly produce can be totally out of this world.
