R is for Radish

The radish is a member of the mustard family, they have a peppery flavour and a crisp, crunchy texture. 
Radishes are the center of the Fraggle Rock ecosystem.  Gorgs farm giant radishes to make Gorg Youth and Beauty Cream (without which the Gorgs would be invisible.)
Radishes are rich is folic acid and potassium and are a good source of vitamin B6, magnesium, riboflavin, and calcium. One cup of sliced red radishes provides approximately 20 cal.

About seven million tons of radish are produced yearly, representing roughly two percent of the global vegetable production.
