We bunch and pack our radishes in cartons, top them with ice and pack them with polyethylene bags of different sizes. Radish harvesting is dependent upon the days of post-seeding which may vary from 30 to 60 days. We offer both mild flavor and crisp radishes with a minimum size of 5/8 Inches.
Red radishes are well-formed, smooth-skinned, firm but of tender texture and uniform in shape per variety. Bunched radish tops are fresh in appearance and turgid. They are free of freeze-injury, seed-stalking, yellowing or other forms of discoloration, disease, decay and insect infestation, as well as growth and/or harvest damage.
The optimum temperature for radishes is 0°C (32°F), and a relative humidity of 95 to 100%. Rapid cooling is essential to achieve the full storage potential for bunched and topped roots. Radishes can also be packed and topped with ice, which allows for an acceptably maintained quality for 7 to 14 days with tops, and 21 to 28 days with tops removed.
Radishes offer a healthy dose of dietary fiber, along with vitamin C for building immunity and fighting free radicals. They also contain vitamin B6, along with folate, riboflavin, and potassium, as well as good amounts of copper, magnesium, manganese, and calcium. Radishes can also regulate blood pressure, relieve congestion, and respiratory ailments. They are antibacterial, antifungal, and detoxifying.
