    It’s funny when a plant has the same name as something sexual.

    I can see why they later went with the name “Canola.”

    actually, they didn’t start calling it canola until the mid-1970s… before that, it was rapeseed oil all the way.

    It still is most of the world over.

    It’s in everything. It was in my tortilla chips yesterday.

    My grandmother still calls it rapeseed.

    That’s because of what happened that time at camp.

    they call it canola because americans are too puritanical to use something called rapeseed.

    No, they called it Canola to promote Canada

    Hi,
    well, it isn’t so strange that it is called rape in a non English-speaking environment, as the word has no sexual connotation at all. In Sweden for instance, people have no idea what Canola is. The world Canola is an abbreviation of Canada and “oleo” (oil). See full explanation of the name and quality here: www.best-alternative-fuel-sources.com/what-is-canola-oil.html
