Radishes

This red-skinned radish is the most common variety.  They are eaten raw in salads or plain.  When thinly sliced, their red outer skin and white inner flesh add color to any salad or relish dish.  They have a relatively mild spicy taste.  Select radishes that are fresh and crisp and bright in color.  It is harder to detect imperfections in packaged radishes, but if they are firm to the touch and fresh and bright in appearance, they are usually quite good.  See the nutritional chart below.
