Radish originated from South East Asia and were grown as early as 2700BC. Ancient Egyptians were fond of radish and used them as currency to ‘pay’ labourers who built the pyramids.
Facts and Varieties
Red Radish: The most common radish in New Zealand are the red varieties, either globe shaped or slightly cylindrical
Daikon Radish: Also known as Japanese, Giant radish and Chinese radish, Lo Baak and Lo Bok
The word radish is derived from the Latin words ‘radix’ meaning root, and ‘raphanus’ meaning easily grown. However, radish is really a swollen stem rather than a root even though it grows underground.
