wild radish (or white radish)

Wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum), which some people confuse with horseradish or rafano, although they are completely different. The flowers closely resemble those of rocket. Also spelled ramoraccio.

To add to the confusion, ramolaccio or rapatrello is also used for the white radish; a red radish is a ravanello.
