Brussells sprouts growing, if you've never seen them

@hope @nat still, amazing that there's that much in one plant's genes

@hope @nat @interneteh if you see a human, and he picks a wart off your face and eats it, be very afraid.

@hope @nat @interneteh I still wonder why given they are all the same species why do Brussels sprouts taste so horrid when the rest are delicious

@Shutsumon @hope @nat different parts of the plant. Tomato leaves would taste gross. Tomatoes are nice.

@hope @nat @interneteh OK, then - now, where does Romanesco broccoli fit into that? Selection just for weird fractals?
