Rapaseed Model (Brassica napus ssp. oleifera) Model

Rapaseed (Brassica napus ssp. oleifera), Item Details:

Enlarged 12x life-size, 3-part
Family: Brassicaceae

Brassicaceae, formerly known as Crucifereae, is named for its Cross-like (Cruciferous) flower. Unique in the plant world for having 4 petals, Rapaseed does not follow Fibonacci's sequence.

The fruit of Rapaseed is refined to make Canola oil. With 30-40% high sugar content it makes an excellent source of food for pollinators. Rapaseed is self-fertile, and has shown in testing that pollination with its own pollen results in seeds 19% heavier than pollination from another Rapaseed.

Brassicas are unique for containing more agricultural crops than any other family, consisting of:
  • Cabbage
  • Radish
  • Mustard
  • Horseradish
  • Turnips
  • Kohlrabi
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Broccoli
  • & Cauliflower

    Rapaseed lends itself to teaching the formidable "Triangle of U" concept. One petal is removable for detailed study of the stepal and stamen. A ripe pod, magified 3x life-size is depicted in cross section, removable from base.
