purple chinese vegetable

this is one of my favorite chinese vegetables, which of course my mom grows in the yard. they are not exactly fully ready to eat yet, but mom figured that i wouldn’t be able to eat it again any time soon, she picked some from her garden. they were still young baby leaves and soo tender! they have a deep purple color, and when cooked, their juice runs purple and stains everything purple!

i didn’t bother googling if they had an english name, coz there probably isn’t one.
