Radishes come in all shapes and sizes. The best-known variety is the slender, white, Japanese hybrid radish. Other types, such as the round black winter radish, are regionally popular.

Radishes grow especially well on a slightly moist and sunny site. Radishes can be sown from March onwards. It is important to prepare the soil well, digging deep and loosening the soil before planting, so that the roots can grow straight, without branching out. Radishes are harvested from June onwards all the way through to the autumn.

There are a number of ways to enjoy radish. The simplest is to wash one, slice it thinly and eat it raw. If you like, you can sprinkle a little salt over the slices to draw out the moisture, leaving the radish tasting milder. Radish also makes a good addition to mixed salads.
