Radish

Are you following along with the August #ProduceMomChallenge Calendar? Today’s challenge is a RADISH! Radishes, a root vegetable, are part of the Brassica family.  While they are thought to have originated in China, radishes are now grown around the world.  In the United States, California & Florida produce the largest crops!  Coming in various colors, sizes, & crop durations, radishes are classified as either a spring, summer, winter, or fall crop.  Since radishes are able to grow year round, they make an ideal vegetable for any home garden!  Encourage your family to plant radishes & watch the growing process – it’s FASCINATING!
