History: It is believed that radishes made there first appearance in China around 500 BC. The ancient Chinese selectively bred them until they acquired ones with a milder taste and a longer root, which is also how the Daikon Radish was developed.

Radishes are great for prevention of a sore throat, fever reduction and assisting with conditions such as bronchitis or asthma.
