Many fruits, seedpods and vegetables show fractal patterns, some in spiraling self-similarity and others showing fractal symmetries.
The probably best known example for fractals is the romanesco broccoli. Each of the small sprouts are a downscaled, self similar copy of the whole broccoli. Additionally the sprouts are arranged in a logarithmic spiral.
Often we can find Fibonacci numbers in fruits and seed pods.
