How many ways can you say broccoli?

Broccoli is very big these days, in many guises.  I've had it raw, I've had it cooked.  Sauteed with baby carrots.  Some of it is purple, some has been mated with cauliflower. Broccolini is everywhere.  Broccoli shoots ditto.  But the other day, I was served something broccolish which I did not recognize.  It consisted of little knobs, half the size of Brussels sprouts.  Since it was served with butter and pancetta, it tasted pretty good.  Turns out it was baby broccoflower.

What is next for the broccoli family?  I await developments.
