Basic information
  • EPPO code: ERUVV
  • Preferred name: Eruca vesicaria
  • Authority: (Linnaeus) Cavanilles

Notes

Mediterranean region. Since antiquity, E. vesicaria has been taken into cultivation (as \"subsp. sativa\"), to the point that it is now difficult to distinguish wild plants from the naturalized descendants of cultivated ones, and to establish what its original geographical distribution may have been.  Common names can be used more or less interchangeably for the wild and cultivated plants
