Fruit: literally grows out of the fucking ground to be eaten
The USA and by extension most of the world now: actually the trees are private so we're gonna wrap each individual piece in plastic and sell them to you at exorbitant prices and then throw away the ugly ones and the ones that didn't sell
The USA and by extension most of the world: you're good!!! I'm going to dry freeze you and fill you with preservatives so I can store you till next year and sell you later,, just in case I harvest a little less and people want a little more than the literal tons already thrown away every year
