Radish " Rambo"
The red radish Rambo is a new variety which has been recently developed; it belongs
to the family of Cruciferae. The red radish Rambo seed is round shaped and rust-coloured; each gram contains about 100 seeds. Sprouts are ready to be eaten in about 5/6 days.
Radish Rambo sprouts are purple-coloured and have a spicy taste; they are rich
in nutritional substances such as vitamins (A, B1, B2, C and PP) and minerals (iron,
potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and phosphorus), which help strengthen
the muscular tissues, develop the sight, have antiseptic properties and stimulate
the secretion of gastric juices, improving the digestive process as well as our
organism's overall defences. They have only a few calories, about 15 Cal. per 100
grams. The content of proteins is 4% and that of carbohydrates 3%.
Radish Rambo sprouts can be eaten alone or together with hors d'oeuvres,
salads and vegetable dishes. Their rather strong taste makes them particularly
suitable with salads, fish and meat, both raw and cooked.
