Purple Radish Microgreens

The Microgreen

Micro Purple Radish greens are vibrant purple leaves and stems similar in size, shape and taste to a micro daikon radish. The deep purple hue of these microgreens makes them renowned among chef and homes cooks alike.  Similar to all other microgreens we sell, the stem and leaf of the micro purple radish are both edible.  Grown from certified microgreens seeds, the radishes are harvested between 14 and 21 days after germination, and are grown safely in a sterile soil growing environment. The stems typically range from 1-3 inches and transform from a translucent white base up to a deep purple stem closer to the leaves. When stored in a cool, dark environment, the vibrant colouring grows deeper, however if left exposed to heat and light over an extended period of time, the colour will fade to a lighter green.

  • Purple & white stems, deep purple leaves.
  • Fully edible leaves and stem
  • Roughly 1-3 inches

The Flavour

In taste micro purple radishes are similar to full grown radishes, spicy, with a mild to sharp punch.  The leaves have a texture similar to spinach, although not as delicate.

  • Light, refreshing Radish taste
  • Nutty and sweet undertones
  • Mild crunch
