The radish is an edible root vegetable of the family Brassicaceae that was domesticated in Asia prior to Roman times. Radishes are grown and consumed throughout the world, being mostly eaten raw as a crunchy salad vegetable with bite.
Cherry Belle radishes (Raphanus sativus) are a small red spring radish about 3/4 inch in diameter like a cherry. The green tops reach 6 to 8 inches in height. Typical of a spring radish, the Cherry Belle is a fast grower. If you keep growing conditions as beneficial as possible, you will have round, red Cherry Belle radishes in about 23 days. The fast growing time gives the radishes a milder flavor that won't overpower salads and are also good eaten raw by themselves.
