V1, A very unusual vegetable on sale at the market in Funchal, Madeira.
V2, Another very unusual vegetable that looks very much like a Dentists Waiting Room.
do we eat it heheh good point two good images V! has great light texture and the detail is spot on good work. Have agood weekend
Yeah, eat it! It tastes just like cauliflower!
I've got a snap of a romanesque in my portfolio too. Didn't take as much care as you over it, but it still shows the intricate shape of the veg.
I found mine on a stall on Lindisfarne in Northumberland, so you can definitely get them over here. I've also seen then at a market in Penrith too!
Love the detail.
You can get them all over the place in my part of the world (Bournemouth). All the supermarkets have them - at a price. I tried growing them myself last year but the pigeons had them before they managed to produce a head :-(
Love V.1, Rock, what an attractive looking vegetable, rather like a pretty cauliflower. Have you tried cropping it tightly so that the intricate detail of the 'head' fills the whole screen? Love V.2, excellent! Carol
Super detail and tones.
Two unusual veg. Obviously the first one is a kind of cauliflower (I think!!), but too pretty to eat! And I'm still laughing at your description of the dentist's waiting room for V2!
What unusual veggies. Pretty ones and Funny ones. Great shots Rob........Sandy
well the v1 I have tried, it is lovely - not sure what dentist you go to....
I know the veg in V1 well and it's delicious! Not the slightest idea what those in V2 might be and having read your comment, think I might prefer to pass on trying them! Both well captured and detailed images.
Had never seen the veg in V1, but a lovely detailed shot. V2 , still laughing about the dentist. I know this as a chou chou, but think it it is called christopherine here. They grow on a kind of vine type plant. Taste pretty bland on their own, but beautiful with a bechamel sauce. Not that I can cook mind you, but my mother in law used to cook these for me and sometimes my husband cooks them, if he can find them. More of my useless information. Moira
I know V1, it's a variety of cauliflower and very tasty. I don't know V2 though, it looks like a hand puppet scowling.
Nice shots and detail Rob Good spot
V1 is one of my favourite veg, it is also a beuatiful design.
V2 is indeed a dentists dream -, so many dentures to be fitted.
V2 really made me laugh ... thankyou
Interesting set. The ones in V2 are cooked in Portugal like a potato and get served with olive oil, crashed garlic, chopped parsley and lemon juice, served with grilled fish. the one in V1 I have never seen. IB
Great shots, as we live in Spain we eat them all the time, V1 is a fancy cauliflower I have a few photos somewhere, V2 is as Chinga says,
Two good shots Rock - v2 with the write up is hilarious
These are both fantastic shots, Rock.
I would call v2 a dentist's nightmare....if I saw teeth that color I would but on a hazmat suit
Two great shots - recognise V1 but V2 looks like someone has sucked a lemon.
I've never seen or tried these before, what are they like? I like the strong colours and textures in these images
