Supermarket giant Asda has launched the U.K.'s first ever 'wonky veg box', giving shoppers the chance to buy imperfect vegetables to feed a family of four healthily for a week. Costing only £3.50 (about $5) each box is filled with seasonal vegetables, salad items including carrots, potatoes, peppers, cucumber, cabbage, leeks, parsnips and onions. The vegetables have been selected from farmers’ crops, mostly sourced from Watts Farms, because they are misshapen or may have cracks, and are sold at a reduced price; as a consequence, it may take customers longer to peel and prepare them.
