Why are there no blue vegetables?

Hi Josh,

You might not see them very often at your local supermarket, but there certainly are some blue veg out there! For example, some of the oldest known varieties of potato are blue. There are also blue carrots and blue corn.

Why don't we see them when we go shopping? The varieties of vegetables we find in supermarkets are usually those that most consumers want, or those varieties that do best in industrial production. So, a lot of interesting veg can only be found in local markets...

Hope this helps!
