Radish "China Rose"
The Radish China Rose belongs to the family of Cruciferae. The seed is round and
light brown coloured; each gram contains 120 seeds. Its pink sprouts grow rapidly
if regularly sprinkled with water more times a day. After 5 or 6 days of germination
it gets tasty and appetizing, ready to be eaten.
It has a very high concentration of nutritional substances such as Iron, Iodine and
Vitamins (A, B1, B2, C and PP), which help strengthen the muscular tissues,
develop the sight, have antiseptic power and stimulate the secretion of gastric
juices, improving the digestive process as well as our organism's overall defences.
Radish China Rose sprouts can be eaten alone or together with hors d'oeuvres and
second courses. Their slightly hot taste makes them suitable for spicing up salads,
fish and meat, both cooked and raw.
