Day 179: Broccoli Romanesco

“Broccoli Romanesco is a garden vegetable in the Brassica family, which includes cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, mustard, kale, and numerous other edible plants. This unusual looking vegetable can be found in some grocery stores, and can also be grown in the garden if you live in a temperate zone. Since the plants can get quite large, prepare to set aside a large area in the garden for growing Broccoli Romanesco. It can be eaten raw or lightly cooked, and has a nutty, slightly spicy flavor which some consumers find quite enjoyable. In appearance, Broccoli Romanesco is truly bizarre. The vegetable illustrates a fractal pattern, growing a spiral head composed of conical florets which also prove to be spirals upon close examination.” To read more click here

  1. Romanesco broccoli makes me swear, Jackie, lol. It looks so nice, but I had seeds and tried 2 years to grow it, and it went to bolt without ever producing heads both times. I have now given up, cos I really don’t like to swear in the garden. 🙂
