Radish Microgreen Seed
Description and Nutritional Value
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 a pungent flavor. Radishes are typically small but pack a good bit of fiber, offering a fulfilling addition to your plate. Radishes are a good source of antioxidants like catechin, pyrogallol, vanillic acid, and other phenolic compounds. These root vegetables also have a good amount of vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant to protect your cells from damage.
Radish sprouts are extremely nutritious. And, fortunately, they’re incredibly easy to grow at home. You don’t even need sun or soil. Plus, if you’re short on space, you’ve found a perfect match. You don’t have to wait a long time to harvest your food. Radish sprouts are ready in just five days. On the first day, add 2 to 3 TBSP of radish seeds to a clean mason jar. Fill the jar halfway with filtered water and then screw on the lid. Now, place your jar in an area out of direct sunlight and in an open air environment. On the second day, drain the water out of the jar. Fill the jar with fresh water and then drain it out immediately again. This is how you rinse your seeds. Repeat this rinsing process again. For the remaining days, repeat the rinsing process two times a day.
