We have a lot of RADISHES right now and they need to be harvested. Please come visit (bring the kids) and take some home.


Considering how small they are, radishes have quite a high vitamin count. The real star among radish nutrition facts is vitamin C, giving you 14% of your daily value in just a ½ cup serving. But that’s not all; radishes have vitamin K, B6, niacin, folate and pantothenic acid. These vitamins are available in significant amounts, especially for such a small serving size.

Radish nutrition facts also reveal that just about all essential minerals are provided in ½ cup, but not in great amounts. Potassium gives you the most nutrients, with 4% of your recommended daily value. Other minerals included are calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and manganese, giving you less than 2% of your daily recommended value.

Health Benefits of Radishes

The biggest health benefit of radishes is how filling they are, which can help you lose weight by satisfying hunger in very few calories. Factor in the high water content and carbohydrates and radishes can help keep weight loss under control.

Radishes are also high in vitamin C, making them a good detoxifier, eliminating toxins that can make you sick. This is especially true to prevent many types of cancer including; kidney, stomach, mouth and colon cancers. But this same vitamin C is also responsible for keeping illnesses like the common cold at bay, as well as chronic illnesses like diabetes and heart disease.

Another health benefit of radishes is due to their status as an anti-congestive, which relieves congestion in the respiratory system. When you get a cold, or an allergic flare-up or infections, a healthy dose of radishes can help clear up congestion for a quicker heal time.

Radishes are also a healthy and low calorie way to cure jaundice, urinary disorders, fever, insect bites and kidney disorders. These are just a few of the many health benefits of radishes.

Now all you have to do is add one serving of radishes to your diet this week!
