Every year, the colour experts at the Pantone Colour Institute pore over research and analyses of design, film, food, fashion, art and entertainment, as well as materials, travel, sports and technology, to arrive at a colour of the year. This year it’s Pantone 18-3838, also known as ultra violet.
Pantone describes ultra violet as a “provocative and thoughtful purple shade” that embodies individuality and spirituality. According to the company, it alludes to the mysteries of the cosmos and the unknown.
Laurie Pressman, vice-president of the Pantone Colour Institute, said: “The Pantone colour of the year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.”
At Fresh Pro we're always looking for trendy new items and in light of the Patone Colour of the year, have recently started marketing the Purple Ninja Radish.
Purple Ninja radishes are medium sized with an oblong shape coming to a thin point or tail at their tip. Their exterior skin is a vibrant purple hue and like many elongated radishes may have slight striations of darker colour and fine hairs or short roots coming out of its skin. Their interior flesh is a star like burst of lavender to dark purple atop a white background. The radishes are capped with purple and green stems and green leaves. The radish offers a crisp bite and slightly spicy radish flavour.
