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.
Low in calories, one cup contains about 20 calories. Radishes provide a good source of vitamin C. Eating five daily servings of fruits and vegetables lowers the chances of cancer.
