Broccoli is not only my favorite vegetable but also a fractal.  Broccoli is an example of one of the naturally occurring fractals in the environment.  Broccoli meets the characteristics of being a fractal because it has a small-scale structure, it is split into parts that are smaller than the origin and it can not be described in regular geometric terms because of its irregular structure.    A piece of broccoli would be difficult to measure because of its small structure and infinite complexity.
