 There is an odd-looking vegetable that is rarely found at the grocery store. Romanesco is a brassica, the same family that gave us broccoli and cauliflower. With a texture like an alien from outer space and bright chartreuse color, it remains a novelty.  Romanesco's spiky protrusions are perfect examples of fractals, repeating patterns found in nature. Is it just me, or does anyone else also see a group of wildly creative but very bumpy crocheted hats??
