[ FEW: *21,198a grateron; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  reble (reblet); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]

The etymology of this word (and its precise sense) is obscure. See, however, Gdf 10,57b rieble (‘grateron, plante’) and TL 8,375 reble (‘Klebekraut’), for what appears to be the same word without what is possibly a diminutive suffix.
