I’ve become used to buying mouldy onions, rancid potatoes, fruit that rots within two days of purchase, and wilted/slimy vegetables. But today when we visited Coles at the Chisholm shops I encountered a display of rotting peaches covered in insects. They were flying all over the place and crawling on other fruit nearby. About 50% of the peaches in the display looked like this.
Please excuse the colours in the photo, it was taken with my old mobile phone. But despite the non-peachy colours, you can see how gross, brown and rotten that fruit is.
Now, I know Chisholm and surrounds are a lower income suburbs, as posted about on the RiotACT earlier, but are we really expected to buy this crap, let alone eat it?
