The French breakfast radish is one of the more than 100 radish varieties. It has a similar appearance to the familiar cherry belle radish, but instead of a bulbous shape, it is elongated with edible leafy greens on top. The French breakfast radish has a mild peppery flavor and crisp texture. It is often eaten raw, but the radish can also be cooked. French breakfast radishes are likely to be found at specialty organic markets.
The first record of French Breakfast radishes in Europe was in 1879. The mild, peppery, and slightly sweet roots were popular in Parisian markets.
