I just came across this awe-inspiring vegetable at the local grocery store (in Jakarta, where I live):
It is truly quite beautiful. It seems like one of those broccoli-cauliflower crosses, but the fractal pattern is absolutely amazing. It was labeled “bunga pagoda”, which just means “pagoda flower” in Indonesian.
If you google the name you get a red flower which is quite common in these parts, but I don’t think it is any relation to this striking plant. The only reference I can find to it on the internet is an expat blogger from Jakarta who posted a photo with pretty much the same question (which no one answered).
Has anyone seen anything like this before?
