Radishes are fast-growing cool season root vegetables in the Brassica family. Their taproots come in variety of shapes, sizes, and colors and have a sharp, spicy taste. They are usually eaten raw and added to salads. Radishes need cool weather and moist soil - they do not do well in hot, dry environments. More growing information is available in individual species entries.
