I found these beautiful black radishes at the OZCF Market Day at Granger Bay on Saturday. It is significantly larger and stronger in flavour than traditional red radishes. The skin of the Black radish is particularly piquant and the flesh is crisp, white and slightly bitter and offers a hot and strong radishy bite.

Crisp, peppery radishes add instant zing to any dish, whether sliced raw as a garnish, added to salads, or served as a side. I still don’t know what I am going to do with mine, but I just wanted to share these beauties with you.

Radishes are available year-round, but are at their peak during winter.

Happy Cooking

  1. Hi Tamlin. I only found them at the market. I will keep an eye on it and let you know if I see them again.

  2. Hi there, have you ever managed to fin black radishes anywhere else in Cape Town? Like Fruit and Veg? Or only at markets?

    Many thanks!
