“Broccoli Romanesco”


Description from Science Chick Runs Sibes: While perusing a seed catalog I discovered a fascinating and gorgeous broccoli variant. I'll make a comment on this FP to show you what inspired me to start thinking of stone/color combos to replicate this veggie.

    The inspiration for this FP
    Particularly like this one and the comparable fractal image

    You captured the pink/green broccoli nicely in your pick. I hope it grows well for you. And if you design a necklace out of your pick, you could display it draped across the veg…

    here are pix from the second website you listed: two of broccoli displaying fractal patterns, and one of a mathematical fractal that looks broccoli-ish.

    Hey, thanks MERchick. Isn’t this veggie beautiful? It would make a great foil for jewelry display. But, I can just imagine the controversy it would cause amongst the other vendors. I’d have to upgrade my application to the local Gardeners’ Market to allow the veggie in the booth.

    I think you’d be OK as long as you didn’t SELL the vegetable…

    Oh, this pick is great! It really does have the best colors to represent this broccoli! I am thinking it looks so lovely to look at, not at all like the broccoli I usually eat!

    Awesome…and YUMMY, Broccolli, I LOVE me some Broccolli!!!! Oh, hey, question Eeka, do you know of a site with one of those fractal things you can play with and make pictures, I had a program ages ago, lost it when my old computer bit the dust, and haven’t been able to find another since. I LOVE messing with fractals!

    That is the coolest looking veggie ever! Slather some butter on it and it’s good to go! LOL Love this pick, Science Chick. I think it would make a really nice necklace or bracelet.

    Sorry, don’t know a fractal site off hand – maybe Gayle SC/RWS does… but i bet you could find one by googling ‘fractal’ and maybe ‘create’ or ‘manipulate’

    All I did to post the veggie pix was go to the sites, copy the pix to my computer (Rightclick, select ‘copy’) then browse it from my cpu to upload.

    This as about as cutting edge as I get w/ a cpu. I’m sure some of you out there are much more facile than I am…
