Comment/Acknowledgements: The ‘wild radish’ is perhaps, not wild anywhere within our area, but found as weed or sometimes cultivated for green fodder or ornamental purposes. Its subsp. rostratus (DC) Thell. (R. rostratus DC., Syst. Nat. 2:666.1821) with long beaked fruits, may also be found cultivated, but should not be confused with the var. caudatus of the following species.
