Would you turn down a wonky vegetable?

Asda has recently started selling "wonky" vegetables in its UK stores, a move which has prompted photos to spring up on social media.
The hashtag #WonkyVeg was one of the top trending terms discussed in the UK on Twitter.
Here is a selection of photos of some peculiarly shaped fruit and vegetables.
Matthew Powell shared this photo of a carrot seemingly on the move.
"Gotta love nature! My son reckons it looks like either crossed fingers or it needs a wee!" Photo: Karen Bonnici.
Mike Rigby tweeted this picture of a squash that looked far from squashed:
"Here is a little tomato gentleman with a moustache, grown by my dad, Ray Coppock. He has been growing vegetables for the last 50 years," says Anne Pettit.
Jeremy Major: "This is an organic, home grown rude carrot".
Campaigners from @UglyFruitAndVeg welcome the idea of wonky fruit and vegetables on sale in supermarket stores, and shared this picture of a smiling peach. Or is it an apple?
Sue from Bristol emails that we shouldn't overlook a vegetable because of its shape: "Please encourage shops to sell wonky veg. It's a crying shame to waste them."
Chris Austin, UK agrees with Sue: "I don't see a problem with wonky veg as once it's cleaned, cut up and cooked you wouldn't know the difference."
