Radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) is a root and leafy vegetable in the Brassica family. Radishes are grown all over the world and there are numerous varieties. They germinate quickly and some varieties are ready to harvest in 3-4 weeks, while others like the daikon radish take several months to mature. At Sunrise Gardens radishes are proof that spring is here, even if there is snow on the ground!
Radishes have a high water content and are a good source of vitamin C and vitamin K. Radish greens are also edible and are delicious in a salad, sautéed and in stir fries. At Sunrise Gardens our radishes are juicy and sweet with a mild peppery bite. We grow radish in the early portion of the season, so they are available for a limited time. Get them while you can!
