Excellent source of vitamin C.
What to Look For:
Look for firm, smooth skins without splits. Radishes can be round or elongated. The attached green tops should have no signs of wilting or discoloration.
Easy Storage and Preparation:
Keeps very well in the refrigerator, although the tops should be used within a day or two. To use, scrub well and cut off the ends.
Use in salad or as a garnish. Young green tops also add zest to salads.
NOTE: An excellent source contains more than 20 percent of the Daily Value for that nutrient. A good source contains between 10 and 19 percent of the Daily Value.
