Bunnie Brand "Romanesco", which I think looks like a fractal brocolli.

Specifically, I think it looks like a

That's not brocolli, that's cauliflower!

I tried some for the first time two weeks ago. It was lovely. Like a fresher, greener version of cauliflower. A vast improvement.

i've had brocoli like that once, but we left it in the freezer too long and it went mouldy.

I am wrong. It is brocolli (thank you Google). If I had known that I might not have eaten it.

"Romanesco Broccoli has slightly waxy large grey green leaves similar in appearance to Cauliflower leaves. When the plant  is approaching maturity it forms a single head about twenty to thirty centimetres across that has a slightly green hue and a wonderful mosaic pattern.  It is a member of the Brassicas Family Cabbage, Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts."

I am sorry for being wrong.

Helen (not her again) says:

Oh no! I am only half wrong.

"Romanesco Cauliflower

A cross between broccoli and cauliflower, this bright green vegetable grows in a head, which consists of small, cone shaped florets. "

Goodness. This vegetable is almost as confused as I am. At least I have learnt something.
