Small White butterfly (Latin name – Pieris rapae ) have attacked the young swede plants.  The Small White caterpillars have eaten the young leaves and left the growing swedes looking ragged.

There are two types of cabbage white:

* the Large White butterfly – Pieris brassicae
* the Small White butterfly – Pieris rapae.

We were so busy watching out for the Large White on the sprouts that we did not notice the Small White butterfly attack the Swedes!
