Raphanus sativus var. oleifera (Fodder Radish)

 Fodder Radish was sown in many fields across Wexford in 2016. This year I have started to find them as an escaped from the fields. This one was on a road verge today. Has a large white radish. The crop should have died during the winter, The hole left by the radish should of helped put air into the soil. As the winter was so mild, the radish never died. The bottom photo is of a radish field today, the radish escaped from.
