About Me: A radish is an edible root from the brassica family. Radishes come in all kinds of sizes and colours: red, white, black, purple, and pink. Radishes have many health benefits and were used in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine to treat many conditions such as fever, sore throat, and inflammation. Both the roots and green tops can be eaten. Radishes are great either raw, steamed, braised, poached, grilled, or roasted. Radishes are a cool season crop so you will usually find them in your baskets during the Spring and Fall seasons.
To store: Store radish roots separate from the leaves. Place dry, unwashed roots and greens each in their own mesh bag, or paper towel, and then place inside a bag, or container inside your fridge crisper. The roots will keep for at least two weeks and the greens for about a week.
