Raphanus raphanistrum subsp. landra is a wild annual plant from Brassicaceae family. Aerial parts of the plant can be used as food: the leaves can be used raw or cooked, flowers and young seedpods can be used raw in various dishes. In our country, it is considered a weed and it is not paying attention to its edible and pharmaceutical uses. The aim of thisstudy is to evaluate the antioxidant, total polyphenols and flavonoid content of the ethanol extract of aerial parts (flowers, silique, and leaves) from this species. The plants were collected from ruderal areas. Ethanolic extracts from the flowers, silique, and leaves were analysed spectrophotometric. These preliminary studies on the phytochemical characteristics of Raphanus raphanistrum subsp. landra bring new and important information about nutraceutical importance and the possibility to be used in pharmaceutical industry.
