What does 花心头菜 mean?

I keep seeing 花心头菜 all over Youku and other Chinese video sites - especially when viewing children animated series. For example:


I've tried looking this term up in my dictionary as well as several online dictionaries - no one seems to have a definition for this term. Anybody here knows?

In Cantonese the term 花心 is as it sounds, flower heart, but is sometimes used in a negative sense followed by the term "lor baat" (I'm not sure of the characters and didn't want to write 蘿蔔). Its a derogatory term for someone who is a bit of a player with the ladies.

However, this seems to literally say "flower heard head vegetable" which like everyone says is probably more of a screen name than a hidden meaning.
