Cauliflower has been

fiddled with by botanists since before we had a term for them. Humans have fiddled more with green veggies than they have dogs.

But the Fibonacci was still natural in that the fiddlers weren't aiming for it. They were breeding for other features and managed to pack the head so tightly with their selection that some kind of order emerged to fit more. That or the order was already there and packing the head tightly ensured this kind of order would prevail.
