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

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! Grin Grin Grin
Great images!

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. Tongue 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.

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.

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,
