Purple Brussel Sprouts - Knowledgebase Question

Menominee, MI
Question by alpha13

I remember reading on the ABC News website a few months back about a market gardener in Indiana or Ohio growing purple brussel sprouts and then shipping them to upscale restaurants all over the United States.

Are there really such a thing as purple brussel sprouts? If so, where can I buy the seed for them?
