Sea Rocket – kromb il-baħar – Cakile maritima

The sea rocket also known as il-Kromb il-Baħar is frequent found in coastal areas, particularly on sandy beaches and similar substrates, in both exposed and shaded conditions.

The sea rocket is a hairless herbaceous plant with succulent leaves, which are either entire or, more frequently, lobed, with some plants showing features of both. It produces white to pink or violet flowers. Usually, the flowers appear between December and September, and March-June, depending on climate. Once pollinated, the flowers give rise to characteristic pod-like fruit known as silicules.
