Radishes for breakfast?

November 11, 2010

Probably not….


When I ordered garlic and shallots a couple of months ago from Peaceful Valley Farm Supply aka, they offered a couple of free seed packs as a bonus. One of my selections was “French Breakfast Radish” .


Honestly I don’t think I’ve eaten more than a cumulative 10 radishes in my whole life, so I really don’t have an explanation. Maybe they just looked good. Yeah, and how bad could a breakfast radish be anyway? And the French are good cooks, so French radishes ……

Anyway, I planted a few squares of them and noticed recently that some were looking ready to taste.

The verdict? These are tasty little buggers- eaten raw as harvested or sliced and added to a salad. A better description can be found here at

Anyway, here are a couple of them pulled this week to sample:

And yes, we are still eating fresh Brandywine tomatoes. 🙂

    I love radishes. They are one of my favorite snack foods to kill the hunger pangs.
