Raphanus raphanistrum subsp. maritimus - Sea Radish
Sea Radish is largely confined to the coastal fringe but occasionally occurs well inland such as at St. Stephen, near St. Austell (SW95L, 1997, M.Atkinson) and on a road hedge at Cross Lanes near Baldhu (SW74R, 1990, C.N.French). It is much more frequent along the south coast and is common on the Isles of Scilly. Recent records include Longrock (SW43V, 1997, C.N.French), Porthoustock (SW82A, 1997, M.Atkinson), Trefusis Point (SW83B, 1998, C.N.French), Turnaware Point (SW83J, 1998, R.E.Lees), Gerrans (SW83S, 1998, M.Tempest), the Gannel (SW86A, 1998, C.N.French), Nare Head (SW93D, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Par beach (SX05R, 1998, I.J.Bennallick) and Lantic Bay (SX15K, 1998, I.J.Bennallick).
