Radish, that common and beloved part of your salad, is a root crop, and it is pungent or sweet in taste with a lot of juice.

Radishes can be white, red, purple or black, and in terms of shape, it can be long and cylindrical or round. They are eaten raw, cooked or pickled.

Selecting Tips

Look for radishes that have medium-sized firm and crisp roots. Smaller is better when it comes to choosing radishes.

Check the leaves, avoid choosing radishes that have wilted or soft roots. Avoid oversized roots as well, for these will be too pithy. Opt for smooth skins over cracked skins.

 

Health Benefits
