EU Rules, OK?

I couldn't find letter-shaped vegetables enough to spell 'contemptible bureaucrats' so I opted for a more positive response to this bit of news. Cucumbers which bend on a curve more than 10mm. over 10 cm. can now be sold. As can forked carrots. However, strict rules still apply on fruit & vegetables which represent 75% of sales in Europe, including tomatoes.

You have a great blog here. I enjoyed the pics and graphics, especially this one.

I'd never realized (until now) that you don't see oddly shaped veggies and fruit on the grocery stores.
