The Mighty Radish Plant

Benefits of this Amazing Little Red Root Plant

One of our most popular Microgreen Plants is the Radish.  Traditionally the duo of Radish and Peas are the beginning of a spring garden, followed by lettuce.  Growing up in New Jersey, the Garden State, St. Patty’s Day was the first day of garden…truly something to be thankful for after long winters on the Jersey Shore.

Radish has a unique pungent flavor but can be tamed with a small sprinkle of salt and used as a mix in salads and recipes.  The leaves are generally composted for gardeners, but an amazing development has occured, and this is MICROGREENS.

Delicious Dependable Radish

Radish is one of the top sellers and most flavorful of the Greens.  This is a dependable grower and consistent green for garnishes and in smoothies.  We believe so strongly in the healing powers of RADISH, we use it daily and even give this to our family dog in his bowl for his daily greens.
