Fruits and vegetables are sometimes shaped weirdly. Very often these cute natural creations don’t even make it to the supermarkets due to their non-uniform shape. In the US, an astonishing number of 6 billion pounds of “ugly” plants are thrown away each year. This is a pity, as their unusual shape make these vegetables special and often even human-like.
