The radish is a plant in the Brassicaceae family. Originally domesticated in pre-Roman empire time, it’s been a staple in the garden for centuries. They are grown around the world. While the root is the primary food source from the plant, the greens are edible as well. There are a number of varieties ranging in size, flavor and color as well as rate of maturity. They tend to have a very sharp flavor. Quickly germinating and growing, many of the varieties are ready to harvest within a month. Often a biweekly planting schedule in the spring through the fall will provide a bounty of radishes.
