Radishes are annual or biennial easy-to-grow root vegetables that are common garden crops in many parts of the world; they have peppery flavor and a crisp, crunchy texture consumed as a pungent taste salad element.

Iran (IMNA) - Among the most popular cultivars are the cherry-sized with a red skin and white flesh.

The radish is a rich source of vitamin B6, magnesium, riboflavin, calcium, folic acid and potassium.

Radishes are cool-season crops that grow best in full sun in light, sandy loams.

During the germination period, radishes need to be thinned and weeds controlled, and irrigation is also required.

The fast harvest cycle makes them particularly suitable for home gardens

Summer radishes are best harvested young; so, don’t leave them to grow too large as they may become woody and inedible.

Pull them in due time, and eat fresh, when crunchy and delicious!
