The Fractal Plant!

Living Juicy said that it was something tasted like broccoli, but I'm not sure what the heck is that so FrAcTaL stuff! :D Any way, that was a very cool demo for fractals in real life :)

Back again:

Yesterday night, I was too tired to take a deep search on this interesting plant. But this morning, when digging deeper into the broccoli... thanks to Wikipedia, I've found Romanesco broccoli to be the fractal one ;)

Wondering about the fractality of broccoli, I have revised my thought about the structure of the "normal broccoli" to consider it also be fractal! Carefully looked at the cross section of various kinds of broccoli, I can conclude that they do have the structure of Pythagoras tree:

broccoli bunches

Cauliflower (broccoli's sibling)
