Last Fractal Broccoli harvest

Finally chopped down all my Romanesco broccoli. Those plants were turning into trees – took up so much space with a small return foodwise. But definitely the most interesting thing I have ever grown. If I ever have more space I may try grow it again. Look how awesome it looks. I let a couple plants grow out more and mature -they ended up stalky – looking and tasting more like sprouting broccoli but a lot more fibrous.

    I accidentally grew some of these. I bought a six pack of what was labeled cauliflower. As ther formed heads they tok on the fractal configuration. I first thought this was Normal for cauliflower. Then… I did some research… Ate one just before the head split and the rest either got attacked by aphids, or are still flowering in the garden.

      Ahhh damn aphids. Did your plants get really big too? I haven’t tried to grow these again since they take up too much space.

      PS I usually spray with diluted dish soap to get rid of aphids 🙂
