http://uliwestphal.110mb.com/mutatocollection/

Smashing stuff Sam. Nature does some odd things.

Kohl rabi and romanesco, both members of the brassica oleracea family

I love wonky veg. because each is unique and interesting and full of goodness.

Veg 1: Beta Vulgaris - Beetroot

Veg 2: Broccolo Romanesco - Romanesco Broccoli

I love wonky veg because humans haven't meddled with it and it is as nature intended.

KOHLRABI (possibly purple vienna)
Brassica oleracea gongylodes caulorapa

ROMANESCO
Brassica oleracea italica

"I love wonky veg because it's usually a sign that they are organic, or at least home grown, and so the flavour will be perfection."

Mystery veg 1 = Kohlrabi - Brassica Oleracea (Gongylodes Group)
Mystery veg 2 = Romanesco- Brassica Oleracea (Botrytis Group)

I love wonky veg because... I'm a slightly odd shape myself, and like to be surrounded by those similarly blessed.

1) 'Purple Vienna' kohlrabi (can be Brassica caulorapa, or Brassica oleracea gongylodes)

2) Romanesco broccoli (Brassica oleracea)

"I love wonky veg because each vegetable can be an unique, regulation-free, tasty wonder."

Mystery Veg 1 is the lovely purple beetroot aka Bete Vulgaris conditiva
and Mystery veg 2 is the Spiral Cauliflower aka Brassicas Oleracea Botrytis yum yum!

I love wonky veg, cos its often the stuff left in the bottom of the basket or box that no one wants and it gets lonely and wants to be eaten so it can give you all if its crunchy veggie goodness and go one to live an immortal life in veggie heaven. Poor lonely wonky veg, I'll have you!

The first vegetable looks like kohl rabi, but some weird purple variety thereof, and the second is Romanesco broccoli. Both are loosely of the species Brassica oleracea.

I love wonky veg because, like people, vegetables should be allowed to celebrate their differences.

I think the veggies are

Kohlrabi: Brassica Oleracea - Gongylodes Group

Romanesco Broccoli: Brassica Oleracea - Botrytis Group

"I love wonky veg because it makes me giggle"

Although that may be a purple cabbage (Kohlrabi, Brassica oleracea var. gongylodes) masquerading as a beetroot to confuse me... pesky cabbage!

2)Romanesco- Brassica Oleracea

"I love wonky veg because".....wonky rules! And let's face it where's the fun in perfect??

I like wonky veg because...

I belive the first veg is Kohlrabi and the second is Romanesco Brocolli.
