  • Already have. I bought quite the variety of tomatoes at my farmers market last year & FIL grew a couple different kinds (chocolate cherry tomatoes - holy yummoliciousness!). I grew multi-colored carrots (and peppers) in my own garden last year, including purple.

  • Oh let me tell you how DIVINE those purple tomatoes are - Not only DO I eat them, I seek them out and buy all of them I can find. They are DELICIOUS and I mean ridiculously delicious.

  • Purple POTATOs are great too, and they're very festive looking on a holiday table... I occassionally find purple fingerlings in the mix at Costco.

  • Sure, if I could find them. Hell, I bet that would actually get my son into eating veggies if they came in purple.

  • I saw a segment about these veggies on Dr. Oz. I'll eat them too.

  • thanks Tinker, I'll look 4 them. I find that most foods have lost their taste so if purple tomatoes are delicious I'm going hunting :)

  • How do they taste? I haven't noticed them in any store around here.

  • I find them at my local little produce market - look for heirlooms - they are definitely few and far between but OH SO worth it. I had them about a month ago and I relished every little bite. Tomatoes overall have just no flavor and I live in Florida where we produce a lot of tomatoes - they are just flavorless. I try to grow my own (still learning) so I can have the delicious tomatoes of my youth in Iowa again.....
