Broccoli or Romanesco?

Yes, Del Sol did in fact recently get compared to broccoli.

"For a lot of people, seeing them for the first time is like discovering they like broccoli"

Got us to thinking. First, if we were going to be an vegetable with questionable reputation - would it in fact be broccoli? Or kale (as Mark Capelle secretly shared with us as what he thought he compared us to), or carrots, or beets, or say, romanesco. Romanesco - a cross between a broccoli and cauliflower with that same mixture of taste that is - seriously - one of the coolest looking vegetables out there. Hooray for fractal vegetation. Or, as some may say, Martian food. How are we in fact like romanesco? Most people don't even KNOW what it is and probably haven't heard about it. Once they see it, they are shocked and amazed at how wonderful and mysterious it is. Once they taste it, they are in love. Much better and way cooler than broccoli. What's your vote?
