Description
Romanesco Broccoli or Roman Cauliflower
(Brassica oleracea)
95 days — Although related to broccoli, Romanesco is actually a variant of cauliflower.  Its heads incorporate a unique, beautiful spiraling pattern that is a light-green color.  The plants looks like typical cauliflower plants.

For you mathematical types out there, the pattern is not only a graphic representation of a Fibonacci series, it is also a logarithmic spiral that is about as close to a fractal as can occur in nature.

Widely grown in northern Italy, some say that it has a texture and flavor superior to broccoli.  To be fair, since this is a type of cauliflower, the comparison is quite literally akin to comparing apples to oranges.  In Northern areas, does best when planted for a fall harvest.  Each packet contains 0.5 gram, which is about 130 seeds.
