Wild Cabbage plants are a great addition to any vegetable garden. They have big leaves with a broad base and long, thin stalks. They are perfect for growing in sunny or partially shaded areas. You can get these plants from most garden centers or nursery stores. They are also available on the Internet.
Brassicae: The wild cabbage plants are considered a weed species by most gardeners because of their large size and narrow spreading leaves. Brassicae latiflora, which is commonly known as the large cabbage white butterfly, is an annual herb that grows up to three feet tall and has gray-green leaves. This plant has large rounded ears and large, tapered blooms. It flowers in late spring or early summer. The leaves have a fissured look and are shiny brown. The stem has a white butterfly pattern that separates it from the large cabbage white butterfly.
Allium: This variety includes wild cabbage plants which are commonly referred to as calcium criteria. This variety is considered an annual and prefers fertile, alkaline soil. Alternately growing allium criteria will produce a large variety of different colored flowers. These flowers are small, about two to three inches in diameter, with whitish stamens and petals, as well as a fissured and pointed growth which top about three to four feet high.
Bruga: This wild plant comes from the deciduous forests of northwestern Mexico. This species is native to drier tropical forests but was introduced into urban areas through trade. This plant was introduced to the United States in the 1950s through importation from Mexico. This variation is susceptible to grazing and can be destroyed by insects such as the purple grasshopper.
allelochemicals: This refers to a set of genetic mutations within a species that cause the plants to show characteristics that are not typical for its kind. Allelochemicals have been found to vary depending on the climate and environment a plant is grown in. This allows a gardener to create a garden of crops that are more resistant to certain pests, diseases, or insects. This type of mutation has affected the wild varieties of lettuce, cabbage and chives to create crops with a thicker leaf, somewhat different appearance and different colors. However, all allelochemicals are fairly constant across the board. This means that there is no way to tell one plant from the other without trying the crops.
Alliatic Gs Chemistry: Alliatic chemistry is the result of two different sets of amino acid residues that occur randomly in plants. This can occur randomly within a species, or can occur randomly in plants that are all completely different. This can make breeding them difficult as well as creating noticeable differences between plants that do share similar traits. The presence of slight differences in the amino acid profiles can be used to distinguish plants by their physical appearance or herbicide tolerance levels.
Brass-and copper-like aromatic compounds: There are two types of aromatic compounds that can be found in wild cabbage. These compounds belong to the Plastisol family. Plastisol molecules contain one copper atom and one brass atom. A similar but less common copper homomer molecule has two copper atoms and one brass atom. The two brass-and-copper gs concentrations found in wild cabbage have been linked to the development of the chemical composition of the plant. The concentration of these two chemicals in undamaged control plants was shown to be highly variable.
Herbicide Tolerance: A previous study by English and colleagues showed a significant difference in the herbicide tolerance of wild and indoor plants within populations. When comparing herbicide tolerance of Brass-and copper-like aromatic compounds using a sensitive route of exposure (oral route) showed that there was a significantly higher frequency of occurrence of the highest concentration of each compound among herbicide-tolerant plants within populations. The frequency of occurrence of the two chemicals was highest during the hot summer months and lowest during the cooler wintertime months. This finding provides additional support for the assumption that the two chemicals affect herbicide tolerance differently.
