How Many Sliced or Chopped Radishes are in a Pound?

Most often radishes are used raw in salads but some recipes do call for 1 cup of sliced radishes or 2 bunches of radishes diced. But how does that translate to purchasing fresh radishes from the store. What are they really talking about? How many radishes are in a bunch? How many radishes are in a pound? In order to help make cooking easier we did some experiments to determine exactly how many radishes you need to buy for that new recipe.

There are many different varieties of radishes but 2 general categories are summer and winter. People usually envision summer varieties when they think of radishes. These have the typical 1-inch round shape with a red/dark pink skin and white color inside. Summer radishes are commonly found in all grocery stores. The Red Globe Radish is a prime example.

Winter types are planted in the fall and have a stronger taste. These radishes grow into an elongated shape with white skin and interior color. A Daikon Radish falls in this category and is most well known for being used in Japanese cuisine. Some winter carrot-like varieties have been known to grow to 24 inches long. And a type of Daikon, the Sakurajima, produces radishes with an average weight of 13 pounds with some reportedly said to have topped out at 100 pounds!

At the market we discovered that 1 bunch of common summer radishes weighed ½ to ¾ pound and contained 12 to 14 radishes. Our sample bunch yielded 1 cup of thinly sliced radishes or 1 ¼ cups when diced. You need about 1 ½ bunches or 20 to 25 radishes, depending on the size, to equal 1 pound. From your 1 pound purchase, you can produce 1.67 cups of sliced radishes.

Radishes have a mild to hot peppery flavor and crunchy texture. Regardless of the variety, the longer all radishes are left in the ground to grow, the stronger tasting they will become. Those picked earlier tend to be relatively milder.

Did you know that radishes are the roots of a plant which is a member of the Brassicaceae family; its cousins are broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and turnip. Radishes are also related to wasabi, a type of horseradish, which in paste form is a principal ingredient of Japanese cuisine. Also, the Guinness World Record holder for the heaviest radish was grown by Manabu Oono of Japan. On February 9, 2003 at the Sakurajima Radish Contest in Kagoshima, Japan his was officially recorded to weigh 68 pound 9 ounces with a circumference of 46.8 in.

If you purchase a fresh bunch of radishes with the greens still attached, discard the tops before storing. Radishes can be kept in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
