Most of us know this edible root vegetable as a crunchy salad topping or mid-day snack. This sometimes overlooked little round ball of goodness is actually very delicious and high in nutrients. Considered a superfood, these little guys could help you lower your blood pressure, improve your hydration, and cleanse your kidneys.
Plus, red radishes are packed with lots of nutrients and are a good source of Vitamin E, A, C, B6, and K. They’re high in antioxidants, fiber, zinc, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, copper, calcium, iron, and manganese.
These are low in calories, when eaten raw and can be quite filling. They are also a great snack for those who are looking to lose some weight. Since they are a good source of fiber, it helps with lowering of your cholesterol and increases your fibre intake therefore aiding in the weight loss.
Check out the harvesting going on here in Florida at one of our partner growers, C&B Farms, this week. Chuck and his team have been hard at work. So you can get a true scale, his team typically picks around 10,000 twenty-four count boxes each with 5-8 radishes in a bunch per week. Whoa…Now that’s a lot of radishes!
