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.
