English translation:whiptail /distorted curding
Explanation:
Klemmherz, German reference:
Kohl. Ursache Molybdänmangel. Betrifft besonders Blumenkohl, Brokkoli und Kohlrabi. Herzblätter sind gekrümmt und verunstaltet, Blätter im Wachstum gestört, der Kopf erscheint nicht oder bleibt klein. Beim Rosenkohl erscheinen keine Röschen, beim Blumenkohl sind die Blätter eingeklemmt. Siehe Nährstoffmangel-/überschuss.
Blumenkohl. Molybdänmangel. Eingeklemmte Blätter, verkrüppelte Herzblätter.

English reference:
d) Whiptail:
This disorder is caused due to the deficiency of molybdenum occurring mostly in acidic soils where pH is below 5.0. In this case leaf blades do not develop properly and remain strap like and severely savoyed . In several cases only midrib development accounting for the name “whip tail”. The growing point is severely deformed and hence does not produce marketable curds.

In cauliflowers, the yellowing of the tissue on the outer leaves is followed by the death of the edges of the small heart leaves. Narrow, distorted leaves develop; the symptom is known as “whiptail ..."

Judging by the story and our own research, I think it means something else as we have whiptail for a different plant disorder. Thanks anyway.
