This post has been rattling around in my brain since early last week when I snapped the pictures you see below.
|Royal Burgundy Snap Beans in blossom|
These beans are purple until they begin to cook and turn green.

It also turns out that purple foods have their own special health benefits.

A delicious heirloom from Czechoslovakia.
Mild, jalapeno-shaped fruit with
fruity, cinnamon flavor
