Saw a new one to me out here. The outside was a deep purple. I dunno what the
inside was though. Kinda shorter than the 'USA Yellows' (as we call those here
to distinguish them from the other types that are also 'yellow' on the

I've seen ones with the insides that are orangey, tan, or brown (yet not
over-ripe). There's one we call 'white' out here (it's not actually, it's just
a paler yellow). There's one we call 'straight' (has a lesser bend to it).
There's one we call 'lady fingers' (that might be actually a correct name for
