Brassica oleracea ‘Romanesco calabrese’

To collect for free from Milly L

This grower is fairly sure of this plant identification.

I planted so. much. romanesco. It's fractal broccoli! I got overly excited. Please come take some of these, so that they may all grow up into beautiful romanesco plants. That having been said, there's a small chance a few of them are cauliflower, because the brassicas all look the same and I got a bit overwhelmed by the amount of romanesco I planted. But cauliflower is great too!

No delivery, sorry.
