First Radish, Ever

December 9, 2011

Radish ‘Easter Egg Blend’

I’ve never planted radishes before. I recall too many salads with big fat red and white ones that offended a childish palate. This fall I decided to plant these colorful, crisp and mild radishes. I’ve changed my mind about radishes.

Check Specialty Produce for links to some recipes worth a try such as Radish Tea Sandwiches and Radish Pachadi (Radish in Yogurt). You can also see which restaurants in San Diego have purchased Easter Egg Radishes recently.
