WTF Is It?!? Round 8

OK, this is by far the weirdest, messiest edible I've ever kept in my kitchen, a thing that performs a sort of vegetal strip tease over the course of a week or so, spilling greenish dragon scales all over counter top and floor. You eat the part that reveals itself, day by day.

I figure it's gonna take a while for this baby to catch on as a breakfast treat, and certainly the, eh-hem, phallic associations are a bit off the charts. Anybody wanna take a stab at WTF this is?
