    Yes. Just bought a bag of mis-shapen peppers at New World. Taste the same.

    Else what happens to these veggies?
    Sold dirt cheap to food processing companies for pies and pizzas.
    We eat it eventually!

    Basically it comes down to supermarkets being evil bastards. They were grown in the same farm as the others and are exactly the same.
