Brassica ( br?s-si-ca) is a genus of plants in the mustard family (Brassicaceae). The members of the genus are collectively known as cruciferous vegetables, cabbages, or mustards. Crops from this genus are sometimes called cole crops, which is derived from the Latin caulis, meaning stem or cabbage. [more]
Cakile () is a genus within the flowering plant family Brassicaceae. Species in this genus are commonly known as searockets, though this name on its own is applied particularly to whatever member of the species is native or most common in the region concerned, the European searocket Cakile maritima in Europe, and the American searocket C. edentula in North America. The genus is native to Europe, Asia and North America, but the European searocket has been introduced into North America and has spread widely on both east and west coasts; in many places it is replacing the native C. maritima, and is regarded as an undesirable invasive species.

Coincya is a of flowering plant that belongs to the family Brassicaceae and is endemic to the British Isles. Only three species of plant belong to the genus, these being Coincya wrightii (Lundy Cabbage), Coincya cheiranthus (nokkasinapit) and Coincya monensis, which has two subspecies, C. monensis subsp. monensis (Isle of Man cabbage) and C. monensis subsp. recurvata (Star mustard).

Herbs annual or rarely biennial, mostly glabrous throughout, usually glaucous. Trichomes absent or rarely as minute papillae on pedicels. Stems erect, simple. Basal leaves subsessile, subfleshy, not rosulate, simple, entire. Cauline leaves sessile, cordate-amplexicaul or rarely auriculate at base, entire. Racemes ebracteate, elongated in fruit. Fruiting pedicels slender or thick and as wide as fruit, erect or divaricate. Sepals oblong or linear, erect or ascending, base of lateral pair not saccate or strongly saccate. Petals yellow or white, rarely with purple veins, longer than sepals; blade obovate, oblong, or oblanceolate, apex obtuse; claw somewhat differentiated from blade. Stamens 6, tetradynamous; filaments not dilated at base; anthers narrowly oblong, obtuse at apex. Nectar glands 2, lateral, semiannular, rarely 1 and confluent; median glands absent or rarely present. Ovules 10-50 per ovary. Fruit dehiscent siliques, linear, terete, 4- or 8-angled, or latiseptate; valves veinless or prominently veined, smooth or torulose; replum rounded; septum complete; style to 1.5 mm; stigma capitate, entire or decurrently 2-lobed. Seeds uniseriate, wingless, oblong or elliptic, plump; seed coat reticulate, mucilaginous or not when wetted; cotyledons incumbent or rarely subconduplicate. [more]
Crambe is a genus of Brassicaceae native to Europe, southwest and central Asia and eastern Africa. It includes among its species seakale (Crambe maritima), grown as a leaf vegetable, Crambe cordifolia which is grown as an herbaceous border perennial, and Crambe abyssinica, which is grown for an oil from the seeds that has similar characteristics to whale oil.

Eruca is a genus of flowering plants in the family Brassicaceae, native to the Mediterranean region. [more]
Erucastrum is a genus of flowering plant in the mustard family. There are approximately 18 species. Erucastrum species are known generally as dogmustards. [more]
Moricandia is a genus of plants belonging to the family . Moricandia ramburii commonly known as violet cabbage, a native of the Mediterranean, is cultivated as a garden flower. [more]
Raphanus is a genus within the flowering plant family Brassicaceae. Two or three species are currently classified in Raphanus. They include the cultivated radish, Raphanus sativus and the common wild radish or jointed charlock, R. raphanistrum. Some authors accept the podding or rattail radish, R. caudatus as a third member of the genus, while others treat it as a variety of R. sativus. Substantial numbers of other species in the genus have been proposed at various times, but almost all are currently regarded as varieties of R. sativus, while a few are treated as varieties of R. raphanistrum or are not accepted as well-described species. Examples are R. raphanistrum ssp. landra and R. raphanistrum ssp. maritimus (Sea Radish). [more]
Sinapis is a genus of plants in the family Brassicaceae. One of the species in this genus is White mustard (S. alba). Black mustard is sometimes placed in this genus as well, but is more often placed in the related genus Brassica. The leaves are a great delicacy in North Indian Cuisine. [more]
At least 119 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Sinapis.
