For those brave enough to try something new or different, you might find those heirloom purple potatoes are richer tasting; others might enjoy the spicier or bitter taste of greens like nasturtium, radicchio, or arugula. We encounter not only a cornucopia of foods and colors, but the names transport us to exotic lands or into whimsical fancy. We see names like: blackjack, Oak leaf, Batavian, and Fire Mountain. In salad greens there are, honey crisp, Melrose, Queen Victoria and Ozark apples. Some of my favorites are the berries: Cape fear, Brunswick, Wild Treasure, Summit and Jewel.
