Spotlight on Radishes

Radishes are in season most of the year, but we tend to think of them more in the spring.

They are low in calories, only 20 calories per cup, and they are high in Vitamin C! Vitamin C is known to help with the absorption of iron from plant foods, be good for our skin health, help in wound healing and support our immune system.


Rinse in cool water to remove any dirt or sand. Trim off the top and tail root. Soak in cold water before enjoying for about 20 minutes for maximum crispness.


Store unwashed and sealed in a plastic bag with a paper towel for a week.


Radishes can be enjoyed raw or cooked.

They are crisp, and their flavor can range from mild to having quite a spicy kick.

How many varieties have you tried? They come in several varieties – red, white, pink, purple, black, daikon, easter egg, watermelon and more!
