Spanish Black Round Radish
Europeans have savored this easy-to-grow winter radish variety, also known as ‘Noir Gros Rond d’Hiver,’ since the 1500s! Its large, 3"-4" globes boast stunning black skin and crisp, pungent, spicy white flesh—and will also keep all winter in good conditions. Grown in the United States since the 1800s, this radish adds spiciness to raw or cooked dishes; spiciness declines when cooked.

Radishes are mostly eaten raw, sliced or diced and added to salads. You can also serve them as an appetizer with dip or hummus or sliced on buttered bread.
The leaves of radish plants are edible and can be boiled to improve the texture.
When storing radishes, make sure to clip their tops so that the roots will last longer in storage.
