Romanesco Cauliflower
This variant form of cauliflower is the ultimate fractal vegetable. Its pattern is a natural representation of the Fibonacci or golden spiral, a logarithmic spiral where every quarter turn is farther from the origin by a factor of phi, the golden ratio.

Your version certainly fared better than mine, possibly the smaller structure of the flowers congratulations!

Thanks you for the explanation of the Fibonacci spiral -- I've been wondering about how that worked for a while.

why the massive border - cannot the image speak for itself? this is a solid contender otherwise. I wish you well with this one.

Cool! Superb fractal pattern and the best image I've seen of this vegetable. (I went looking for one in my greengrocer's but there were none to be had.)

Beautiful rendering. Border's kind of heavy for the subject, but eh... FWIW, Romanesco is a cauliflower, not a cabbage :-)
