    Amazing, beautiful photo. The link for the fractal food article is broken: it should be http://www.fourmilab.ch/images/Romanesco/

    Delicious to eat too, not just to look at.

    Thanks Justine and Diane, I’ve fixed the link (and Justine, I’ve added you to the preapproved commenters list – for other readers, that’s the reason for the double response, since Diane posted before I was able to approve Justine’s post).

    Inspiring!! I have baby broccoli Romanesco growing in my garden right now, from seeds imported from Italy. I hope at least one of mine grows to look like your photo.

    Yeah, I once saw it in Food Co-op in Mount Vernon, WA and was so amazed. I stir-fried it with some regular broccoli and ham, which tasted really good, and of course, looked beautiful!

    Amazing! How or where can I buy some Brassica oleracea [Botrytis Group] ‘Romanesco’ seeds ?

  9. Daniel Mosquin

    Search on Google or another search engine for:
    site:com Romanesco seeds
    (I noticed a few vendors)

    Would you be willing to make this one available at 1024×768? In paging back through the old entries, I find I still really love it.

  11. Daniel Mosquin

    I’ll see what I can do, Courtney – might take a few days, though.

    this is the craziest thing ive seen, i once saw it on the veggie market early morning, proof that God likes his psychedelics as well as us.

    This cultivar is highly modified by humans. If you are specifically referring to the spiral pattern, that’s often seen in nature and explainable by mathematics.

    Thank you Dave for introducing me with new plant. It is so fascinating.
