Learn About the Radish

If you think radishes can only be served sliced in a salad, think again! With names like Cherry Belle, Easter Egg and Black Spanish and colors ranging from red, white and black, the radish is more than meets the eye. Radishes are very beneficial for the liver and stomach and even act as a powerful detoxifier, which can come in handy during those first few weeks in January when many people are recovering from the holiday season.
