Heirloom Radish Seeds
The radish is a very ancient vegetable that originated in China. From there it travelled
west to where the ancient Egyptians valued it highly for its energy giving properties. For instance, the pyramid builders
were fed radishes in large amounts. As well, the vegetable was revered by the ancient Greeks as food for the gods.
Radishes are easy to grow and can be sown a number of times in the growing season. Radishes can help treat congestion,
eczema, fluid retention, gout, liver and gall bladder problems, rheumatism, and sinusitis.
