Easter Egg Radish – Available Now in the Produce Department

The name “Easter Egg Radish” is a reference to their globe-like shape and bright color. The radishes can come in white, pink, red, and sometimes even purple, and they do start to look rather like Easter eggs poking up out of the ground as they mature.

An Easter Egg radish is a brightly colored spring radish which is packed with flavor, despite the small size. The peppery radish may eaten plain, included in salads, or grated onto a range of dishes.
