Veggies in my local supermarket aren't too uniform either and there are still vibrant weekly markets where uniformity is not expected.
However, in the country that consumes the highest number of ready cooked meals it is not surprising that consumers have been trained by the supermarkets to like things easy to pack, easy to peel and so on.
Vote with your feet and buy local. Write to your supermarket managers and their bosses saying you want to see local, UK produce, even if it is a bit lumpy and bumpy.
