Two weeks ago, I wrote about the ability of some members of the cucurbit family of plants (melons, squash, pumpkins) to cross pollinate. I had many responses, and some people asked if other garden plants can cross pollinate. The answer is “Yes!”
Many of our vegetable plants come from the mustard family, or Brassicaease, which contains 338 known genus and more than 3,700 species worldwide. One of the subgroups in that family is the genus Brassica.
