SNOW BELLE RADISH... | by magda indigo
Back to photostream


Snow Belle is an all-white variety of radish, I bought these around Christmas and they were labelled 'French breakfast' radishes. However, now in my research, it shows that is was wrong, the French are elongated!


The common name "radish" is derived from Latin (Radix = root).

Although the radish was a well-established crop in Hellenistic and Roman times, which leads to the assumption that it was brought into cultivation at an earlier time, Zohary and Hopf note that "there are almost no archaeological records available" to help determine its earlier history and domestication. Wild forms of the radish and its relatives the mustards and turnip can be found over west Asia and Europe, suggesting that their domestication took place somewhere in that area.

White radish contains more vitamin C than fruits, is rich in vitamin A, vitamin B6,Calcium,P,Iron, riboflavin, magnesium and copper.


Lead and enjoy a good life, do and say things that enrich... and do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them!

With love to you and thanx for the good wishes, M, (* _ *)

Why not view the set as a slide-show?

Also I often upload more than one image at the same time, I see a tendency to only view the last uploaded...
