University of Wisconsin-Extension
Kristin Krokowski is the UW-Extension commercial horticulture educator for Waukesha County. To Eat or Not to Eat? Less-than-Perfect Garden Produce goes over whether or not to discard produce with: fruit and vegetable spots, leaf spots, odd shapes, mold, rot, chewing damage, worms and maggots, caterpillar damage, leafminers, and loopers. A common theme throughout the piece is if the skin of the produce is broken and damage is on the edible portion of the produce, discard and do not distribute. The end of this guide includes a summary table of food-safety recommendations discussed above for both producers and consumers
