French Breakfast radishes are a small to medium-sized varietal, averaging 5 to 10 centimeters in length, and have an elongated, oblong to cylindrical appearance with a single taproot. The radish’s skin is thin, taut, and smooth, showcasing a two-toned nature of fuchsia-red hues with white tips. Underneath the surface, the flesh is white, dense, succulent, and crisp with a crunchy, snap-like consistency. French Breakfast radishes have a mild, earthy, and peppery flavor. When the roots are cooked, they develop a subtly sweet, nutty, and mellow taste. In addition to the roots, the leafy green tops are edible and have a crisp texture with a vegetal, green, and slightly peppery flavor.
These radishes all feature white tips and red tops, distinguishing them from all-red varieties like the popular 'Cherry Belle' radish. Most grow small, almost cylindrical roots that are no more than 2 inches long, although some types of 'French Breakfast' may feature a more rounded shape.
