Introduction: There are many defining characteristics of the family Brassicaceae (Cruciferae). Some characteristics are lobed leaves, non-reproductive parts consist of four sepals, four petals in a cruciform arrangement. The stamens are tetradynamous meaning they have four long stamens and two short (Distinguishing characteristics of plant families). The floral structure of the family Brassicaceae is very different from other families because they’re fruits.
