Is it edible? What does breeding for size do to the taste I wonder?

I like cauliflower. This one is even more impressive when you see the actual picture of it in the article link, and some of the other things he's grown in the past. He's good at growing veg it seems, a good hobby for him to have too.

It must be ok I imagine.

Well if you can use some of his techniques in open fields GM crops may not be necessary.  In theory we could end world hunger.
