I came across this crazy looking broccoli at Brooklyn Fare and I was so fascinated I had to pick one up and bring it to Resistor. We took some photos under the microscope (thanks to Ryan for letting me borrow his camera)!
Various people that I’ve shown this thing to have said “oh I’ve seen those before” BUT I HADN’T.
Oh man these things are cool. Fractals all the way down!
Apparently it’s called Romanesco Broccoli. More info at wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanesco_broccoli
Any commenters have any knowledge on these crazy vegetables to share?
