Radishes

RETAIL

Keep displays refrigerated and supplies rotated to main high-quality product. However, only bunched radishes should be misted, and using ice in the display can help maintain proper humidity levels.

Topped radishes are radishes that have clipped tops with a length no more than 3/8 inches, according to federal specifications. Bunched radishes are radishes with full-length tops tied in bunches.

Placement

Radishes work well when placed in a display alongside other salad ingredients.

Promotion

Try displaying radishes next to green onions or cucumbers to an eye-catching color effect.

FOOD SERVICE

After trimming the leaves off a radish, they can be used as a salad or cooked and used as greens.

For hors d'oeuvres, hollow out radishes and stuff them. Radishes can also be substituted for turnips in any recipe.

HANDLING

- Moderately sensitive to freezing injury (Able to recover from one or two light freezings.)
- It tops of the radishes are attached, they should also be fresh.

NUTRITION

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the following content descriptors for radishes: fat-free, saturated fat-free, very low sodium, cholesterol-free, low in calories, and high in vitamin C.
