Son en su mayoría plantas herbáceas con hojas con sabor a pimienta, debido a la gluconapina (GLUCOSINOLATOS) y su producto de hidrólisis butenilisotiocianato. La familia comprende muchas plantas de importancia económica que han sido extensamente alteradas y domesticadas por el hombre. Las flores tienen cuatro pétalos. Los frutos en forma de vaina contienen numerosas semillas. El término cress se emplea generalmente para muchos miembros de la familia Brassicaceae.
