Technically, it's rapeseed.
Urban legend has it that no one would buy 'rapeseed oil', so they named it 'Canola oil' for marketing purposes. Canola comes from 'Canadian oil, low acid' and was named by the company (Canadian Oil, I think) that developed the plant. It's one of the top sources of vegetable oil.
I was in Ireland earlier this year when the rapeseed was in full bloom. Thousands of acres of the stuff, and very pretty.
Such is the useless info one picks up from having been born in farm country.
I remember being in the stockyards with my grandfather, a rodeo calf roper turned sheep broker, and complaining about the stench.
His retort was "Smells like money to me."
I'll ride through farm country any day.

I lit a cigarette and dragged a smoking stand beside the chair. The minutes went by on tiptoe, with their fingers to their lips.
'How' are words so important they cannot be too often used.
Sting like a butterfly.
