The Color Red

One of our okra plants has started producing pods that are partially red. I know that there are strains that make red pods, but this is just regular old Clemson Spineless. Also, the plant put out standard green okra for months, from May until the last few days. Maybe it has something to do with the weather change. Whatever the reason behind the color change, I think the red okra looks pretty cool. We'll find out this evening if it tastes the same.

Concerning the color red, I've also included the latest picture of our not-so-red "red" bell pepper.

Did the okra taste the same? It looked yummy, along with that beautiful bell pepper!

How odd...I've never seen Okra take on a reddish hue like that. I wonder what's causing it?
