Galinsoga is an annual weed of vegetables. It was a serious problem when the vegetable industry was centered in North Jersey and it relocated right along with the vegetable industry to South Jersey. It is also called gallant soldier and quickweed. The latter because the seed starts to germinate on the way to the ground so that several generations are possible each growing season. Another species, G. ciliata, is called hairy galinsoga.
