This is a plant grown around the world, called aburana in Japan, and rape in parts of Europe. The rape plant is part of the Brassica family, which includes cabbage, collard, kale, mustard, etc. These plants are harvested for their roots, stems and flowers (which are edible). Rape is best eaten when still young (like spring greens). This plant is also used to make rapeseed oil and a derivative of this plant is used to make canola oil.

Can my dog eat aburana? This plant is not recommended for dogs to eat. A dog eating the rape plant will get sick. It can harm their nervous system, cause stomach problems, and even breathing problems. Can my puppy eat aburana? No, as this plant is also poisonous for puppies.
