Romanesco

Romanesco - My wife, Joanna, bought one of these today from the Fruit and Veg shop, and not as I thought from the Alien Market on Regula IV, a very bizarre looking oblect it is too, called a Romanesco it has fabulous fractal panterns on it, it's... a cross between a Broccoli and cauliflower, sometimes known as a Broccoflower, we've not cooked it yet, if it hasn't taken over our bodies by Monday and replaced us with exact duplicates then we may cook it then !!

It looks like a satelite photo of WHOVILLE.

I think I sneezed one of those once... (it hurt)!

Two veggies I hate combined into one! That just might work!

It's a mandelbrot plant! It's well smart.

I like both so I'd have double the fun, just before I became one of THEM!!!

There's no way I'd be eating that!

Just look at it! Surely nothing in nature falls from a tree (or wherever the hell it comes from) looking like something from this year's Turner Prize?!

Would make a great shape for a space ship - perhaps an engine?

Very common in Italy: "Cavolo Romano"
To be eat alone or in many delicious dishes ;-)
