Radish is a root crop and member of the Brassicaceae family, also known as the cabbage family, which includes other cool-season crops like cabbage, kale, collards, broccoli and cauliflower. The name radish comes from the Latin word for “root” and a Greek expression that translates into “easily reared.” Western Asia (likely China) is considered the country of origin for the wild form, and it was first recorded around 2000 B.C. in Egypt. Radishes were especially popular and highly regarded with the Greeks. The original radish was probably larger and slow-growing, similar to Daikon radish.
