Let Dig In© show you the best vegetables and flowers to put in your garden right now. Watch our segment below, and read more about Cole Crops.
The terms “cold” and “cole” sound the same but have different meanings. “Cold” of course refers to temperature. “Cole” refers to any of various plants belonging to the mustard family. Even though you might not be familiar with mustard or enjoy eating mustard greens, you are certainly familiar with other members of this family which prefer to grow during the cool (cold) weather of early spring.
Cole crops are in the Brassicaceae family, formerly called Cruciferae, and many are in the species Brassica oleracea. A kale-like ancestor was grown in gardens as far back as the time of the Roman Empire. In Europe, cabbage gardens were very impo rtant food sources during the Middle Ages. Differences in size, shape and taste between cole crops are undoubtedly the result of early selection for various edible parts.
The cole crops of cabbage, kale, collards, turnips, rutabaga, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower, are among the most widely grown vegetables in the temperate zone. Cole crops are also widely grown during the cool season in tropical and subtropical areas.
Cabbage, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cauliflower, Mustard, Kohlrabi, Turnips, Kale, Collards, rutabaga.
