I was just trying to enter Cauliflower, Denali into the database and it told me there was already a plant named Denali, BUT, it's a broccoli. I tried to check and see if I added it wrong but I could not tell. I don't know if there really is a Denali broccoli, but I am sure there is a cauliflower Denali. Not sure who to contact to check on this.

It is a cauliflower. The species name was correct for cauliflower (Brassica cretica), but someone had added "Broccoli" as the common name. I changed the common name to Cauliflower.

Cauliflower (Brassica cretica 'Denali')

Thanks to both of you for finding and correcting, that's what makes this database great!
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
