2) This member of the family of Cruciferous vegetables (which includes cabbage and turnip), is a Eurasian plant, most likely a native of Asia. It was probably domesticated in China over 3,000 years ago, and possibly also the eastern Mediterranean area. The Egyptians pressed oil from their seeds (before the arrival of olive oil), and were part of the food rations of the workers who built the pyramids. They were also a popular snack food in ancient Rome, although Pliny (in ‘Historia Naturalis’) thought it "a vulgar article of the diet" with a "remarkable power of causing flatulence and eructation."
Name this plant.
