Green Cauliflower (B&W) (2018-02-05 19-22-57a)

Green Cauliflower (Brassica oleracea)

I had seen photos of this vegetable before but had never tried it. My daughter bought one and cooked it up. (I photographed it first.) Regular cauliflower is not one of my favorites but it’s alright – cooked or raw – but I didn’t like the the green version at all. If I was starving I could eat it but, if I have a choice, not so much.

The pattern on the plant is often found in nature – the center of sunflowers is a good example – and is based on what is known as the Fibonacci series after the Italian mathematician who discovered it. It’s pretty simple. You start with 1 + 1 = 2. Then take the 1 and the 2 and add them: 1 + 2 = 3. Next 2+ 3 = 5, 3 + 5 = 8, 5 + 8 = 13, etc.

The photo was taken with a Google Pixel 2 XL phone. I then used Luminar 2018 to apply the Clarity Booster preset from the basic presets and my own B&W conversion preset.

    • We use something called “Imperfect Produce” which sells vegetables and other things that the grocery stores won’t touch because aren’t perfect. There’s nothing wrong with them. THey taste just as good as the stuff in the stores but they’re cheaper and it gets delivered right to your door. However, they only sell what they can get their hands on so they don’t have everything all the time. I think they’ve only had this once. I’ve never seen it in the stores.
