Radishes

Radishes belong to the Brassica family, the same as other cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, kale, and cauliflower. They have a slightly spicy flavour with the intensity depending on the variety selected. You may be most familiar with the common red radish, but other varieties include daikon, black, green and wild.


Radishes are a good source of vitamin C (which is helpful for your immune system, your skin, and your blood vessels), contain some anti-cancer properties and are a source of fibre. The greens can also be consumed and offer magnesium, Vitamin C and Vitamin K.


Did you know radishes can easily be grown in the Bow Valley? Why not grab a pot of a soil, a few seeds, and give it a try?!


Radishes can be enjoyed raw, roasted or pickled. See below for ideas!
