Hybrid veggie



Would you eat a purple pepper?  How about a green carrot?  Does red celery sound appetizing?  You might want to change your mind because red celery is coming to the menu after years of being perfected in field right here in Florida.  Read all about the farmer who has spent a quarter of a century developing the red vegetable on page 6B of today’s Times, "Still crunchy, but now it’s crimson."  What type of genetic experiments do you think were involved in this project?  And what is the point of growing red celery?  Share your hybrid vegetable thoughts here on our blog!
