Here are my first radishes of the season. I grew these sparkler white tip radishes with seeds from the Livingston Seed Company. This is the first time in years that we’ve had a garden and that I’ve grown radishes.
I used my radishes in a salad last night and they tasted great. There are several wonderful things about radishes. First they grow and mature very fast. They are easy to grow and are hardy in even cooler, wet climates. They are good to mix within your garden as bugs and other pests don’t like the smell of them. I mixed in these radish seeds around other rows of plants and so far the bugs have stayed away.
On a nutrition level, radish are very low-calorie root vegetable with just around 20 calories for 7 radishes (3 ozs). Also they are an excellent source of antioxidants, electrolytes, minerals, vitamins, and dietary fiber. Check out this chart from Nutrition and You that outlines all the different nutrition values of radishes.
