Have you heard of Brassica?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Thu May 12, 2011 7:15 pm

If so, how would you tell the different types by looking at starts of plants?

See text.

Brassica (play /ˈbræsɪkə/ brás-si-ca) is a genus of plants in the mustard family (Brassicaceae). The members of the genus may be collectively known either as cabbages, or as mustards. Crops from this genus are sometimes called cole crops, which is derived from the Latin caulis, meaning stem or cabbage.[1]

This genus is remarkable for containing more important agricultural and horticultural crops than any other genus. It also includes a number of weeds, both wild taxa and escapees from cultivation. It includes over 30 wild species and hybrids, and numerous additional cultivars and hybrids of cultivated origin. Most are annuals or biennials, but some are small shrubs. Due to their agricultural importance, Brassica plants have been the subject of much scientific interest. Six particularly important species (Brassica carinata, B. juncea, B. oleracea, B. napus, B. nigra and B. rapa) are derived by combining the chromosomes from three earlier species, as described by the Triangle of U theory.

The genus is native in the wild in western Europe, the Mediterranean and temperate regions of Asia. In addition to the cultivated species, which are grown worldwide, many of the wild species grow as weeds, especially in North America, South America, and Australia.

I had never heard that name until last night and that is what I found for it.

Nope, I've not heard the name before either.
Got pics? I have no idea how you might tell except with a book, maybe?

While I heard of brassica, I am more familiar with the term cruciferous, which is the term used to describe all of the cabbage family of plants, which are actually different cultivars of one specific species in the brassica genus. Believe it or not, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and Brussels sprouts, among others, are not only in the same genus, but the same species as well.

How to tell them apart as seedlings? That I'm not sure about. I imagine many of them may appear quite similar until they start to mature.

Thank you Tater. At least I am not the only one who doesn't know much about Brassica... seems we all have more to learn.
