The everyday radish is such a common vegetable that we often overlook what a truly superfood it can be. Radish microgreens come in many beautiful colors and add a nice zing to any dish. The microgreens have that distinctive radish sharpness but are significantly milder than the full vegetable so the flavor is much easier to add.
Research has shown the radish microgreens have significant content of both cancer fighting and cardiovascular disease ingredients. These valuable properties are amplified in microgreens as they contain significantly more content than the mature radishes. Because of this finding, you can eat just a small helping and have the equivalent of a large helping of the radish that you normally think of.
Radish microgreens are also extremely quick growing as crops can be ready to go from seed to table in 5-8 days depending on your taste. Colorful, fast growing, helps fight both cancer and heart problems while tasting great. What a true SUPER food!
