Radish - Roots

Radish plants are grown for their crisp, peppery-tasting roots. Radishes can look similar to beets, but radishes are usually smaller, smoother, and brighter in color.

Radishes are typically red and round, but other colorful cultivars include white, pink, or purple.

The shape may also vary from round to oblong.
