[The Mustard Family on Mt. Adams]

Wild Radish

Raphanus sativus

All the photos of wild radish on this page were taken along Rd #23 at the Mt. Adams Viewpoint about one-half mile south of the intersection with road #8810.................September 25, 2005. The petals of this species may be purplish or as in this case, white with yellow or purplish venation.



The photo above shows a close-up of the silique of wild radish constricted between two seeds. Note the beak or tip of the pod, which is conical in shape and is about 1/4-1/2 the length of the pod.
