Ok people this is complicated, firstly what most of us call "vegetables" have evolved from ancient wilderness just like everything else. What most of us call broccoli is part of the brassica genus or "the mustard family".
The term 'mustard' is believed to be derived from the use of the seeds as condiment; the sweet 'must' of old wine was mixed with crushed seeds to form a paste.  It is amongst the oldest recorded spices, with Sanskrit records dating back to about 3000 B.C.
