Storage Tip: Separate the greens from the radishes ASAP, and store the greens in plastic. YES, you can eat greens, either raw or cooked. Scrub the radishes themselves, rinse in cold water, and refrigerate layered with paper towels in an airtight container.

Tasty Tidbit: I didn’t like radishes until I tried them cooked, and now I enjoy them raw as well. Cooking takes the bite out of them. You can use them instead of potatoes when you put a roast in the crock pot, or you can braise them alone as a side dish. Radish flavors vary widely based on the weather at the time of harvest and the different varieties will likely have varying flavors, so if you’re not sure if you like radishes, don’t stop after trying just one! If you’re adventurous, you can experiment with eating the greens raw or cooked. There are plenty of recipes online with ideas for using the greens.
