Hi - I'm stumped on identifying this plant, it was growing wild but doesn't fit any id, and I'm wondering if it might be a bird-seed escapee.... or a related to a garden cultivar. The leaf looks tantalisingly familiar but I can't place it.
Help appreciated!

Hi Jenny,
looks really like a Brassica of some kind to me. Could be an escapee, or a hybrid with an escapee. Just changed my mind, thats not just a womens' perogative (?)... its CHARLOCK. Do I win a major prize?

Regards
Richard

It sure looks like a Sinapis of the Mustard Family (Cruciferae) ), but what variety.
Sinapis alba (white mustard) perhaps?

Thanks for the help, I managed to get a definite id and its Sea Radish (raphanus raphanistrum ssp.maritimus). Apparently a very variable plant, which is why it had me puzzled.

Hi Jenny,
believe it or not, I think that I weeded some out on a job at Barraduff the other day. Maybe its locally common. Just like Charlock, but hairless.

Keep smiling

Hope your not still looking for "Barraduff"...If your heading from Mallow to Killarney on the N72 you will pass through the Village...
