Things I saw at the Supermarket

Unlike America where California or Chile is constantly churning out fruit/vegetables, Germany is much more "seasonal produce" oriented. Strawberries are pretty much gone and now it is plum season. I have also seen some other strange things:

Conical Cabbage:

Not sure what this is but I call it the "Fractal Vegetable":

and even Pumpkins! I hear that Halloween is getting bigger over her in Germany.

The first picture is a special kind of cabbage for making sauerkraut, and the second pic is a cross between broccoli and cauliflower.

The conical cabbage is good for stuffing because it is not a dense head and has plenty of spaces. You must remove the core.
