radish, spicy, strong tasting, daikon, black, pink
Black radish is one of the staples in our home over the winter. It grows super fast without much hassle and stores for a very long time in our fridge. No need for some fancy cold storage space to keep these. We love to grate the root vegetable and mix it with other roots and lettuces to keep us nice and healthy throughout the winter months. We feel good about it being a local veg in the month of April.
Good for digestion and helps to cleanse the liver, the black radish grows to about 5″ round and fits perfectly into your veg drawer in the fridge. We love to just cast the seeds out, water away and watch them grow with very little maintenance. Great for kids gardens as they don’t need to work too hard to get a crop out of it.
The daikon radish is such a treat for us in the winter. We love this long storage root vegetable that is a well known variety to people in Japan and now loved by Quebecers here.
