Radishes

early spring, fall

Beautiful bunches of radishes are like carrots – they offer us the delicious roots and the delicious greens. Follow the same storage ideas as for carrots but know that radish bulbs will not keep as long as carrot roots. And like carrot tops, the greens are entirely edible. They make great pesto, and if they’re really young and tender, are good sliced up into a salad Greens that are a little tougher can be cooked like turnip or mustard greens.
