Cherry Belle Radish

Red radish

These radishes are bright red little cherry bombs of zesty radish flavor. They are brilliant served cold or refined sautéed in thyme and butter.

Preparation Tips

Wash before using, trim the little root and leaves. The leafy greens can be used raw or sautéed. Some enjoy radishes simply washed, trimmed, salted, and eaten. Thinly sliced or grated, they add crunch and flavor to salads and slaws. Many Europeans enjoy radish sandwiches, with thinly sliced raw radishes on delicious bread with sweet butter.

Storage Tips

Summer and winter radishes store well in the refrigerator for 1–2 weeks once the tops have been removed. Store greens separately for 2–3 days.
