The Church Farm winter radishes are positively blooming! Compared to the radishes you may typically see in supermarkets, our radishes are large and bulbous, with a black skin and crisp, white flesh.
The black radish is an annual root vegetable that is a member of the Brassica family. First cultivated in the eastern Mediterranean, it is an excellent source of vitamin C, in addition to potassium, iron and magnesium. Furthermore, consumption of the black radish is believed to help prevent infections and promote a healthy digestion system. Throughout history, the black radish has been eaten for its health benefits, whether that be in China (for pulmonary and respiratory health), India (to promote the health of the liver) or Europe (to stimulate bile function). Whatever the reason for their consumption, I think we can all agree that the health benefits of the black radish are numerous – why not pick up a bunch today?
