Crop profile for rutabaga in Canada, 2015 / Prepared by: Pesticide Risk Reduction Program, Pest Management Centre.: A118-10/23-2015E-PDF

"The rutabaga (Brassica napus var. napobrassica), also known as “swedes”, is a member of the Brassicaceae family. The plant is a cross between turnips (Brassica rapa) and cabbage (Brassica oleracea) and originated in Scandinavia or Russia in the 17th century. Rutabaga was introduced into North America by European immigrants in the early 19th century. The rutabaga root consists of both a true root and true stem. The upper portion of the stem forms a neck, which distinguishes rutabagas from turnips. The rutabaga is a biennial plant, requiring two years to complete its entire life cycle, from seed to seed. However, only one growing season is required for the production of the edible root, which is the commercial product"--p. [1].
