Do You Buy Purple Produce?

YumSugar Community member Lauren picked up a bunch of purple asparagus at the market, and her beautiful bounty reminded me of a San Francisco Chronicle article about violet-hued vegetables such as artichokes, carrots, potatoes, and cauliflower. Turns out a dazzling color isn't the only selling point: purple produce also contains anthocyanin, an antioxidant. I happen to love fuschia baby carrots and indigo-colored cauliflower. Where do you stand on purple produce or, for that matter, any vibrantly-colored vegetables?

I have never seen such things! But I have bought purple grapes, so I can't say I've never bought purple produce before!

I tried purple cauliflower once. It was pretty good, actually. I'd like to try purple asparagus, but I haven't had much luck finding it by me.

Never seen purple asparagus but will have to look out for it now.

Typically, the more colorful the veggie, the more nutrients it contains. I would definitely try purple veggies!
