Indeed. About the only fruit in the world every animal and human ignores. Quite a sticky mess if you cut them up. A falling "brain fruit" can also knock you out easily. ;)


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

I knew I saw that fruit somewhere, probably in some documentary. Smile

Looks like Baby Romanesco, a broccoli-cauliflower mix.

Yep, it's Romanesco broccoli.

We must dissent.

RE: Botany Quiz
Nope. I had to take a panorama picture because otherwise it would have been too easy. That tree can be found mostly in the southern half of Europe, although it can survive under northern European conditions as well. It isn't native to England but was cultivated there since the 16th century. References to that plant can even be found in classical Greek histories.

It is more familiar in your place than almost everywhere else in Europe.
