Archaefructaceae, the first flowering plant

Archaefructaceae, which dates from 125 million years ago, is thought to be the first member of the plant group angiosperms. Almost every plant food source humans use — wheat (the source of bread and pastas), rice, corn, fruits — is an angiosperm. Most of these angiosperms have been significantly changed by domestication from their wild varieties.
