This game is an ode to the quirky fruits and unique vegetables. Anyone who has ever worked in the garden knows: Nature does not produce uniformity. This is not only the case in your own personal garden, but also in professional fruit and vegetable cultivation.
For many years, producers of fruits and vegetables were bound by strict regulations. Standards emphasized the appearance of their crop. The products in the stores had to be the same size, shape and colour. Too large, too small, curved, lumpy or speckled specimens ended up in the cattle feed, in the biogas plant or in the dump – instead of on the store shelf. Fortunately, a large number of these unnecessary rules have now been abolished. But still about 30% of our food goes to waste.
An eggplant that is a triplet? A cucumber that looks like a snake? A siamese twin tomato or a bell pepper that seems more like a creature from outer space?
Have you ever seen a carrot with two legs?
The quirky carrot, the curvy cucumber and the extravagant eggplant-triplets play the lead in this memory game. They are beautiful. Precisely because of their marvellous, unusual features. They are tasty and healthy as well, just like their straight, smoothed and perfectly symmetrical counterparts that can be found in the supermarket.
This game consists of 24 pairs of vegetables and fruit. Try to match each pair. Be aware: look carefully! Every image is unique, no pair looks alike.
