Add some spice and flare to any dish or salad with your own home grown organic radish sprouts. Our organic radish sprouting seeds are the daikon variety and pack a potent antioxidant punch. Radish sprouts are a great source of calcium, potassium and magnesium, and help support healthy cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
The radish belongs to the brassica group of vegetables, which include cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower and broccoli. Numerous studies suggest that brassica vegetables are protective against cancers of the lungs and alimentary tract. Organic radish seeds are easily sprouted, inexpensive, and an excellent nutrient dense food.
Suggested Use: Soak 3 tablespoons of seeds in cool 70°F filtered water for 8 to 12 hours. Then rinse and drain well. Keep seeds out of direct sunlight and rinse and drain thoroughly with cool water every 8 to 12 hours for the next 3 days. On day 4 relocate your sprouts if necessary to get indirect sun light. Continue to rinse and drain every 8 to 12 hours. On day 5 or 6 when sprouts have reached the desired length, rinse and dry with a paper towel. Once dry, put in a sealed container and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Yields approximately 2 cups (8 oz) of sprouts.
