radishes that are soft, dull-colored, have white or brown scars, or black spots. If the radish tops are yellow, limp or slimy, the radishes are old or have not been refrigerated properly.

Seasonality: All year

Remove radish greens, which are edible, before storing and place in a plastic bag. Refrigerate up to one week.

Preparing Radishes
