Triton Radish produces purple stemmed microgreens. The stems are a colorful purplish-red and are beautiful against the dark green cotyledon leaves.
Radish microgreens are quick to germinate (sometimes within 24-hours) and are vigorous growers. They quickly reach 3- to 4-inches in height and ready to harvest in 6- to 10-days.
The dark green leaves are attractively-lobed with reddish-purple stems.
Radishes make the perfect edible garnish that will add a touch of color and spice to any dish. I also use them in egg dishes, salads, cold soups, and burgers. You can use radish microgreens in place of sliced radishes.
As mentioned, the flavor is spicy but not harsh.
Though Triton Purple was developed specifically for its distinctive purple sprouts, in its mature form, it is a type of Japanese winter radish also known as a “daikon,” which means “large root” in Japanese.
Radishes are a staple microgreen because of how quick and easy they grow and their excellent flavor and texture.
