Radishes are among the most diverse edible root vegetables, varying in all kinds of sizes, colors and lengths of required cultivation time. They come from the Brassicaceae family, which was domesticated in Europe in pre-Roman times. Their crisp texture, fast growth and rich sustenance make them a staple vegetable.
Radishes are a great source of Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Magnesium, Copper and Manganese, Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Folate and Potassium. One cup of radishes contains just 19 calories!
Try them on salads, as pickles, or alongside other veggies in a crudité platter!
