Citrus Fruit Disfigurement – Are They Safe To Eat?

Unsightly Fruit and Vegetables

Disfigurement of fruit is caused by temperature, nourishment, fungus and water supply. Even though the fruit may appear unsightly, there is no danger when you consume the fruit.

The message: Why throw away perfectly good produce just because it doesn’t meet arbitrary cosmetic criteria — especially when so many families can’t afford to eat the five daily portions of fruits and vegetables recommended by nutritionists? They claim the product is as good, tastes the same, but is 30 percent cheaper.
