Radishes – Information and Facts

Radishes are a popular vegetable with a crisp texture and mild, peppery flavor. They’re available year-round but peak in summer and early fall. Though they’re often eaten raw, radishes can also be cooked to sweeten their flavor and make them more palatable for some. Let’s explore the benefits of adding radishes to your diet as well as some tips for buying and storing them.

Nutrition Facts

Radishes are low in calories but high in fiber, vitamin C, folate, potassium, manganese, copper, riboflavin, magnesium, and calcium. They may help lower cholesterol levels due to their high fiber content. Radishes are also a good source of antioxidants which can reduce inflammation throughout the body.

Choosing the Best Radish

When buying them look for ones that feel firm and have bright coloring. Avoid those that are soft or wrinkled as they will not taste as fresh or crisp. Radishes with the leaves still attached will last longer than those without leaves. Choose smaller radishes over larger ones as they tend to have less heat and more sweetness.


It’s best to store radishes with their leaves intact to maximize their shelf life. If you have already trimmed off the leaves then you can store them in a sealed container filled with water so they stay hydrated while in the fridge. Be sure to change out the water every few days or so to prevent bacteria from growing on the radish surface or inside of the container itself. You can also store radish roots without water by wrapping them in damp paper towels before placing them in an airtight container or bag and refrigerating them for up 2-3 weeks depending on how fresh they were when you bought them initially.

Conclusion on Radishes

Radish vegetables offer numerous health benefits such as lowering cholesterol levels due to their high fiber content and providing antioxidants that can reduce inflammation throughout your body. When purchasing radish vegetables make sure they are firm with bright coloring and smaller sizes tend to be sweeter than larger ones.
