Brassica (/[unsupported input]ˈbræsᵻkə/ brás-si-ca) is a genus o plants in the mustard faimily (Brassicaceae). The members o the genus are collectively kent as cruciferous vegetables, cabbitches, or mustards. Crops frae this genus are whiles cried cole crops, which is derived frae the Latin caulis, meanin stem or cabbitch.Common types o brassica uised for fuid include cabbitch, cauliflouer, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, an some types o seeds. The genus is kent for containin mony important agricultural an horticultural crops. It an aa includes a nummer o weeds, baith wild taxa an escapees frae cultivation. It includes ower 30 wild species an hybrids, an numerous addeetional cultivars an hybrids o cultivatit origin. Maist are annuals or biennials, but some are smaa shrubs. Due tae thair agricultural importance, Brassica plants hae been the subject o much scienteefic interest. Sax parteecularly important species (Brassica carinata, B. juncea, B. oleracea, B. napus, B. nigra an B. rapa) are derived bi combinin the chromosomes frae three earlier species, as describit bi the Triangle o U theory.

The genus is native in the wild in wastren Europe, the Mediterranean an temperate regions o Asie. In addeetion tae the cultivatit species, which are grawn warldwide, mony o the wild species graw as weeds, especially in North Americae, Sooth Americae, an Australie.

A dislike for cabbitch, broccoli can be due tae the Brassica species containin a chemical seemilar tae phenylthiocarbamide (PTC), a chemical which is either bitter or tasteless dependin on ane's genetic makeup.

Brassica oleracea

Brassica oleracea is the species o plant that includes mony common fuids as cultivars, includin cabbitch, broccoli, cauliflouer, kail, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, savoy, kohlrabi an gai lan.


The Brassicaceae, a medium-sized an economically important faimily o flouerin plants (Angiosperms), are informally kent as the mustards, mustard flouers, the crucifers or the cabbitch faimily.


Cucurbita is a genus in the gourd faimily Cucurbitaceae first cultivatit in the Andes an Mesoamerica an nou uised in mony pairts o the warld. It includes species grown for thair fruit an edible seeds (the squashes, pumpkins an marrows, an the chilacayote), as well as some species grown anly as gourds. Thir gourds (an ither squashes) come in mony colours, includin blue, orange, yellae, reid, an green. Thay hae bicollateral vascular bundles. Mony North an Central American species are visitit bi specialist pollinators in the apid group Eucerini, especially the genera Peponapis an Xenoglossa, an thir bees can be very important for fruit set.

Cucurbita species are uised as fuid plants bi the larvae o some Lepidoptera species, includin cabbitch mochs, Hypercompe indecisa, an turnip mochs. Cucurbitin is foond in Cucurbita seeds.Several species o Cucurbita are native tae North Americae, includin Cucurbita foetidissima (buffalo gourd), Cucurbita digitata (calabazilla), an Cucurbita palmata (coyote melon). Thir plants produce gourds an furm lairge, fleshy, tuber-lik ruits. Some species, houiver, are native tae Sooth Americae, includin Cucurbita pepo.


The Eudicots, Eudicotidae or Eudicotyledons is a monophyletic clade o flouerin plants that haed been cried tricolpates or non-magnoliid dicots bi previous authors. The botanical terms wur introduced in 1991 bi evolutionary botanist James A. Doyle an paleobotanist Carol L. Hotton tae emphasise the later evolutionary divergence o tricolpate dicots frae earlier, less specialised, dicots. The close relationships amang flouerin plants wi tricolpate pollen grains wis initially seen in morphological studies o shared derived chairacters. Thir plants haes a distinct trait in thair pollen grains o exhibitin three colpi or grooves parallelin the polar axis. Later molecular evidence confirmed the genetic basis for the evolutionary relationships amang flouerin plants wi tricolpate pollen grains an dicotyledonous traits. The term means "true dicotyledons" as it conteens the majority o plants that hae been considered dicots an hae chairacteristics o the dicots. The term "eudicots" haes subsequently been widely adoptit in botany tae refer tae ane o the twa lairgest clades o angiosperms (constitutin ower 70% o angiosperm species), monocots bein the ither. The remainin angiosperms is whiles referred tae as basal angiosperms or paleodicots but thae terms hinnae been widely or consistently adoptit as thay dinnae refer tae a monophyletic group.

The ither name for the eudicots is tricolpates, a name whilk refers tae the rit structur o the pollen. Members o the group hae tricolpate pollen, or fairms derived frae it. Thae pollen hae three or mair pores set in furrows cried colpi. In contrast, maist o the ither seed plants (that is the gymnosperms, the monocots an the paleodicots) produce monosulcate pollen, wi a single pore set in a differently orientit raut cried the sulcus. The name "tricolpates" is preferred bi some botanists fur tae evit confuision wi the dicots, a non-monophyletic group (Judd & Olmstead 2004).

Numerous faimiliar plants are eudicots, includin mony common fuid plants, trees, an ornamentals. Some common an faimiliar eudicots include members o the sunflower faimily lik the common dandelion, the forget-me-nae, cabbitch an ither members o its faimily, aiple, buttercup, maple an macadamie. Maist leafy trees o mid-latitudes belang eudicots an aa, wi notable exceptions bein magnolies an tulip trees whilk alang tae magnoliids, an Ginkgo biloba whilk isnae an angiosperm.

The name "eudicots" (plural) is uised in the APG seestem, o 1998, an APG II seestem, o 2003, for classification o angiosperms. It is applee'd tae a clade, a monophyletic group, which includes maist o the (umwhile) dicots.
