 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Creeping Yellowcress (Creeping Yellow Cress, Yellow Fieldcress, Keek)
  • Latin Name: Rorippa sylvestris
  • Family Name: Brassicaceae
Growing up to 60cm high, this close relative of the Watercress and other members of the Brassica family can be found growing in arable fields, waste ground, ditches and river banks.  It has a dense and large creeping rootstock that puts out runners and can become invasive.  Like many of the other Rorippa species, the Creeping Yellowcress has a peppery taste and can be fed to your tortoise in moderation.
