Hard to check for bugs

The leaves look like they might be good for a stir-fry and much easier to check. Maybe this type is clean? Like white asparagus - clean. The green ones need to be shaved.

Fascinating Akiva: A little Wikipedia info: fibonacci romanesco-cauliflower: spirals in nature | The Fibonacci Spiral | Fibonacci fractal cauliflower! The Sunflower and Pineapple belong to this classification of veg/fruit. The Romanesco superficially resembles a cauliflower, but it has a visually striking fractal form. (fibonacci-shaped-romanesco-broccoli)

Named after Leonardo Bonacci (c. 1170 – c. 1250)[2]—known as Fibonacci (Italian: [fiboˈnattʃi]), and Leonardo of Pisa, Leonardo Pisano Bigollo, Leonardo Fibonacci—was an Italian mathematician, considered to be "the most talented Western mathematician of the Middle Ages".[3][4]

Fibonacci Sequence

The Fibonacci Sequence is the series of numbers:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, ...
The next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it.
The 2 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+1)
Similarly, the 3 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+2),
And the 5 is (2+3), and so on!
