@InvaderXan I've never seen them sold in shops, which is why I haven't tried it since I was 7 and my parents grew it for us. They taste a bit like broccoli and cabbage, which makes sense since they're the same species :) I also love them because of how cool they look, I'm thinking of even growing them on the front yard because they look kinda decorative. They're probably my favourite vegetable.
@Some_Person @InvaderXan they don't jive with factory farming. They take up too much space per plant. I've actually seen them in a few shops in recent years, but they can't hold a candle to garden fresh. (Like most thinks lol) P.s. if you've eaten a broccoli stalk, you know a good approximation to it's flavor.
@InvaderXan @Some_Person Roughly half of my friends fall into that category. We are all quite poor, and most of them were raised on food that came out of boxes. Being blessed with a mother who gradened, and inheriting her Green thumb, I've appointed myself veggie ambassador to everyone. Something I count as my greatest achievements was getting my most picky of friends to not only try ”the weird purple thing” AKA an eggplant but also come back for seconds and thirds! Nothing is quit like having the privilege of feeding people plants you grew yourself.💚
