Reader SB bestows on this vegetable a 2005 Natural Design Award.

I agree.

It's a piece of romanesco broccoli (a cross between broccoli and cauliflower).


SB bought and ate some over the weekend and - like William Blake, when he stopped a moment and really looked at a grain of sand - found himself not playing with but, rather, staring at his food.

So he thought I should have a look.

He was right.


Read much more about fractals, of which romanesco broccoli is a wonderful living example, here.

If you'd like to learn more about Benoît Mandelbrot, who invented the word "fractal," you can do so right here.
