The radish (Raphanus sativus) is a Brassicaceae root vegetable that was cultivated in Europe before the Roman era. They are grown and eaten all throughout the world. Radishes come in many different types, each with its own size, color, and cultivation time.
Some radishes are produced for their seeds, while oilseed radishes are planted for oil production, as the name implies. In as little as three days, a radish seed can sprout into a tiny plant. Raphanus sativus is another name for spring radishes, summer radishes, winter radishes, Oriental radishes, Daikon, Japanese radishes, Chinese radishes, and Oriental radishes.
