GMAT Sentence Correction 9-12

I solved the Sentence Correction questions 9 to 12; 4 correct.
Reference: The Official Guide for GMAT® Verbal Review, 2nd Edition

The following is the question that I spent a little more time than other three deciding on the right answer although I got it correct eventually.

Do you think this sentence is grammatically correct?:
Native to South America, when peanuts were introduced to Africa by Portuguese explores early in the sixteenth century they were quickly adopted into Africa’s agriculture, probably because of being so similar to the Bambara groundnut, a popular indigenous plant.

It’s NOT.
The underlined part should be;
peanuts were introduced to Africa by Portuguese explorers early in the sixteenth century and were quickly adopted into Africa’s agriculture, probably because they were

“Native to South America,” is an adjectival phrase, and the sentence needs a subject and a verb. The connector “when” subordinates the clause “peanuts were introduced”, so it shouldn’t be there. The main clause in the correct construction represents parallelism, such as “were introduced” and “were adopted”.

Today I relearned the opening adjectival phrase, and the parallelism of the main two verbs.
