Radishes ?


Have  you ever seen radishes on a cactus?

Unbelievable where they grow these days.

I grew them the traditional way…… in my garden

a welcome addition to my salad!

It was rather delicious !

  1. I had never seen the radishes as you have shown here. Very interesting. I do love them crunchy in a salad and I love to eat them plain also. Thanks for sharing with me

  2. Oh my! Those are what we call prickly pears. I know them as ‘tunas’ in spanish, although they have other spanish names. I’ve eaten them all my life and they are delicious! My mouth watered just looking at how ripe and yummy they look. The problem is getting all those prickles off. My mom and sisters used to do it. I always managed to get jabbed. I don’t eat them very often now since my mom passed several years ago and my older sisters aren’t as willing to peel them for me (and risk the pain) now that we’re all grown. Funnily enough, my daughter loves them too and is willing to peel them, if we can find them. 🙂

    • Those prickly ones are from The Botanical Garden, I didn’t realize you can eat them. I think I would be careful or let someone else do it like your sister. 🙂

  3. Jetzt habe ich auch Appetit auf Radieschen… auf die aus der Erde.
    Die am Kaktus schaue ich mir lieber nur an – außer es sind essbare Früchte, dann probiere ich auch gerne eine. 😁

    Alles Liebe!

  4. I just wanted to say that ever since I saw this post I had radishes on my mind. And finally this week, I bought some and made a salad. It was delicious! Probably nowhere near as good as the radishes from your garden, but it was a tasty salad nonetheless. Thanks for inspiring me!

Love to hear from you......
