A root vegetable related to the turnip and horseradish family, with a crisp texture and a peppery hot flavor. The intensity of different radishes varies from mild to quite strong, depending on the type. There are two main categories of radishes based on the time when harvested and referred to as the spring or winter radishes. Spring radishes are harvested early in their growing season resulting in a smaller radish, such as the Icicle. The winter radishes are harvested later in their growth and result in a more elongated shaped vegetable. The Icicle can be served as an hors d'oeuvre, as a garnish for salads or sandwiches, or simply as a snack.
When selecting, choose the radishes that are firm, crisp, and without blemishes. Store without the leafy tops and place in the refrigerator to keep fresh for four to seven days.
