A head of broccoflower

A broccoflower (also known as romanesco broccoli) is a hybrid created by crossing cauliflower with the related broccoli. It has a very unusual apearance, being a bright yellow-green with spiky florets. Another variety is identical in shape to the cauliflower, but with lime-green flesh. Both taste more like cauliflower than broccoli, and are generally served steamed or lightly boiled.
