'New dawn' for curvy cucumber

The European Union on Wednesday announced it is easing restrictions on the sale of curvy and misshapen fruits and veggies.

"This marks the new dawn for the curvy cucumber and the knobbly carrot," EU Agriculture Commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel said.

"We simply don't need to regulate this. In these days of high food prices and general economic difficulties, consumers should be able to choose from the widest range of products possible."

Tell us what you think: is it high time regulators focused elsewhere? Or do you favour "pretty" food over knobbly produce?
