Strange fruit and veges that look nothing like their mass-produced equivalent

Uli Westphal, whose works revolve around how people perceive and impact nature, has been documenting non-standard fruit and veggies from Berlin’s farmers markets since 2006 to show the ‘last survivors of biological variety’ in his Mutatoes project.

It’s really quite fascinating to see just how varied the fruit and vegetables we are so used to seeing in a certain way can really be. As Westphal put it, ‘Produce has become a highly designed, monotonous product. We have forgotten, and in many cases never experienced, the way fruits, roots, and vegetables can actually look (and taste)’.
