Cherry radishes are a type of radish that is characterized by its small size and round shape. The skin of a cherry radish is thin and can vary in color from white to red, depending on the variety. The flesh of a cherry radish is crisp and crunchy, with a slightly sweet flavor.
Cherry radishes are an excellent source of nutrients, including vitamins C and A, potassium, and folate. They can be eaten raw or cooked, and are often used as a garnish or added to salads. Cherry radishes can also be pickled or fermented. To grow cherry radishes, sow the seeds in loose, well-drained soil in early spring.
Keep the soil moist but not wet, and thin the seedlings to 4-6 inches apart when they are 2-3 inches tall. Harvest cherry radishes when they are about 1 inch in diameter. Store them in a cool, dark place for up to 2 weeks. Use cherry radishes within a few days of harvest for the best flavor.
