Broccoli is one vegetable which has divided foodies' opinions. While some swear by the healthy floret in their dishes, others tend to avoid it altogether. There is, however, no denying the fact that Broccoli is a storehouse of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The low-calorie, high-fibre cruciferous vegetable is a must-have for those trying to lose weight. Apart from this, its high Vitamin C content is great for building immunity and nourishing hair and skin. All these health benefits that Broccoli offers make it a wonderful vegetable to add to the diet, although several complain about its bland taste. A Reddit user recently shared a photo of a 'Huge Broccoli', which was actually a tree which resembled the vegetable.
The hilarious picture was shared on the sub-Reddit r/funny, which has over 35 million members. Posted by u/posingur, the photo went viral on Reddit receiving over 48.5k upvotes and hundreds of comments. In the capture, we could see a strange tree which had a thin trunk and lush green foliage. The strange lighting and timing of the photograph made it look exactly like a giant Broccoli! "There's a huge broccoli outside," exclaimed the user along with the post.
Users reacted to the photograph in the viral Reddit thread. While some thought it was the stuff of their nightmares, others found it quite amusing. "It's how I got my kids to eat the stuff... I called them trees," commented one user on the post while another suggested, "Kill it with melted cheese!"
