in what people might Know and Think
are swedes period I have one source that says they
appeared in the 17th century and one that states they
were around in the Middle ages.
It is believed that Brassica napus originated from a
fortuitous hybridization between the turnip (B. rapa)
and kale (B. oleracea acephala), probably in European
gardens during the Middle Ages.
