The Red radish is grown mainly for its root; a small, scarlet globe with a crisp and peppery, translucent, white flesh. The radish produces green leaves that grow from the root above ground, which are also edible. They have the texture of watercress and a bit of its flavor, but with a great mustardy bite as well.
Red radishes contain vitamin C, folate, fiber and potassium. Like many radishes, Red radishes contain active enzymes that are known to aid in digestion.
