A member of the cruciferous family, the radish is closely related to cabbage, kale, turnips, and cauliflower. While not especially high in most essential nutrients, radishes are tasty as well as low in calories, making them ideal for snacking and as spicy addition to salad, soup, and vegetable side dishes. Summer radishes have a more intense peppery flavor than those cultivated during spring or fall. Although the bright red glove variety is the best known in North America, other types include black radishes, daikons, and white icicles.
