🥗#romanescobroccoli #broccoli I grow these as #ornamentalveg Romanesco broccoli is an edible flower bud of the species #brassicaoleracea. Cool season plant that bolts when exposed to high heat. Tastes similar to cauliflower, but with a slightly nuttier, earthier flavor. I'll sauté it w/garlic & lemon zest, & a dash of red pepper flakes for lunch. #spiraledbuds #coolseasonplant I'll plant seeds in late July for Fall/Winter crop #green #vegetable #seedtospoon #selffertile #fromplanttoplate
