Radishes are Rad
One of the easiest and fastest growing vegetable is the radish. We recommend planting in early spring so you can savor your harvest in about 4-6 weeks.
Radish greens are also edible and very tasty. They are part bitter and part peppery and are high in calcium and other nutrients. They provide a very good source of anti-oxidants, electrolytes, minerals, vitamins and dietary fiber.
We enjoy sauteing radishes and greens in olive oil, garlic and other spices for our soups. Or you can use large, thick pieces instead of crackers for dips and spreads, or use shredded radishes instead of lettuce to top tacos. We even started marinating them for a grilled cheese we’re working on that combines it with pear and brie!
