Hi, I’m Ruby – an easy-to-grow, tiny vegetable with a lot of big crunch!
I’m a zippy little thing. If you plant me by seed, I’ll start peeking out of the soil in 2-3 days, and you can harvest me in about a month! Wheee! I’m really fun to pull out of the ground, too – just gently pull on my “hair,” and I’ll pop out to say hello! (Hello!)
- Home Soil: Originally from western Asia, just east of the Mediterranean

- Favorite Fact: Radishes are typically small, but the Japanese type of radish (called the daikon) grows up to 18 inches long!
- Favorite Foods: Salads and contemporary French cuisine
