loveliness 334


Fractal food in the food box! I was delighted to find one of these guys nestled in amongst the potatoes and beets etc. Better yet, a google search for "fractal vegetable" gives all the right results ('cause who knows what these things are called?). I was surprised to learn that this is actually a heritage variety, even though it looks totally futuristic or perhaps related somehow to the transgenic bunny (but is it art?).  I may try to photo this thing before we eat it, but truth be told it is a little grubby, and not as perfect as other internet fractal veggies. In the meantime, here is a photo from the wiki:

  1. This is amazing! It looks so deliciously mathematical! I definitely want to eat some tasty fractal mathiness too!

    Very lovely find!
