Brassica oleracea

Pliny included what he called cyma among his descriptions of cultivated plants in Natural History: “Ex omnibus brassicae generibus suavissima est cyma,”[1] (“Of all the varieties of cabbage the most pleasant-tasted is cyma”).[2] Pliny’s descriptions likely refer to the flowering heads of an earlier cultivated variety of Brassica oleracea, but comes close to describing modern cauliflower.

  1. Wow! I’d never observed the cauli in such detail! Bad food handling by a lot of fresh produce sellers often has the surface damaged as well, so this is a lovely unspoiled specimen. Great shot.🙂
