Summer rape
Rape Rape, n. [L. rapa, rapum, akin to Gr. "ra`pys, "ra`fys, G. r["u]be.] (Bot.) A name given to a variety or to varieties of a plant of the turnip kind, grown for seeds and herbage. The seeds are used for the production of rape oil, and to a limited extent for the food of cage birds. [1913 Webster]

Note: These plants, with the edible turnip, have been variously named, but are all now believed to be derived from the {Brassica campestris} of Europe, which by some is not considered distinct from the wild stock ({Brassica oleracea}) of the cabbage. See {Cole}. [1913 Webster]

{Broom rape}. (Bot.) See {Broom rape}, in the Vocabulary.

{Rape cake}, the refuse remaining after the oil has been expressed from the rape seed.

{Rape root}. Same as {Rape}.

{Summer rape}. (Bot.) See {Colza}. [1913 Webster]
