Ripe healthy radishes feelfirm (not spongy) when squeezed. Skin should be vibrantly colored and free ofcracks and the leaves should be bright green, not yellow or wilted.
Leaves draw moisture from theroot, so remove them as soon as you get home. Young, fresh radish leaves areedible (chop or stir them into a risotto, or throw them in a pasta salad).
Radishes can be refrigeratedand stored in a sealed bag or airtight container for up to 1 week.
To revive shriveled radishes,shock them in an ice bath for 20 minutes just before serving raw.
