If I cross broccoli with eggplant, do I get e.coli?


Probably because broccoli and cauliflower (and brussel sprouts and several other veggies) are all technically varieties of the same plant species.


Its crazy how we created every cruciferous veggie, broccoli to bok choy, from a tiny headless cabbage plant. Can’t help but laugh at the non-GMO trend when we’ve been modding every food we eat for thousands of years


> Brassica oleracea is a plant species that includes many common foods as cultivars, including cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, Savoy cabbage, kohlrabi, and gai lan. Same species, can fuck?


Caulioccoli would have been my choice for the name…
