This is a delicious vegetable- with a peppery zing! The greens are very good too.
They are smaller than average, but I believe that's due to a late start and very warm temps. A good veg for the area.

Very easy to grow, wonderful flavor as well. I am growing this radishes along my carrots. I love to put them in salads. Some can be a litlle spicy though so be aware.
