Bunias erucago, Bunias orientalis.

Bunias erucago Linn. Cruciferae.

Mediterranean countries. In Italy, Unger says this species serves as a salad for the poor.

Bunias orientalis Linn. Hill Mustard. Turkish Rocket.

Eastern Europe and Asia Minor. This plant is called dikaia retka on the Lower Volga. Its stems are eaten raw. This rocket was cultivated in 1739 by Philip Miller in the Botanic Garden of Chelsea and was first introduced into field culture in England as a forage plant, by Arthur Young. The young leaves are recommended by Vilmorin either as a salad or boiled.


Sturtevant's Edible Plants of the World, 1919, was edited by U. P. Hedrick.
