Raphanus sativus, radish
RABANO GIGANTE DE MALLORCA
This seems to be some kind of large elongated radish
We saw this growing in the Royal Botanic Garden, Madrid  in April 2018

Raphanus sativus is mentioned in THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 73, July 2013  in
THE MOUNT SCOPUS BOTANICAL GARDEN

Living in Korinthos, Greece.
No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care
