Extract from Wikipedia article

The radish (Raphanus sativus) is an edible root vegetable of the Brassicaceae family that was domesticated in Europe in pre-Roman times. Radishes are grown and consumed throughout the world. They have numerous varieties, varying in size, color and duration of required cultivation time. Some radishes are grown for their seeds: oilseed radishes, for instance, may be grown for oil production. Radish can sprout from seed to small plant in as little as 3 days.
