Storing Radishes

Storing Radishes

What is the best method of storing radishes? Radishes are actually quite easy to store when you consider the following tips…

Buying Radishes

When buying radishes, there are usually two options:

  1. Radishes can be found sold in bunches with the tops attached.  These are the freshest radishes and can also be more expensive.
  2. Pre-packaged radishes are also commonly available.  These radishes have a longer shelf life and can be a cheaper option.

Look for radishes that have a firm, brightly colored root and healthy leaves.  Avoid radishes that feel spongy or look wilted.

Preparing Radishes for Storage

Bunched radishes should be stored by first removing the leaves and then wrapping the roots in plastic.

How to Store Radishes

Radishes are not sensitive to chilling, and should be stored in cold conditions in the refrigerator.

Store radishes in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Note

If your radishes are getting old and not quite firm, they can be revived by immersing them in ice water for an hour or two before serving.
