Also known as the winter radish, white icicle radishes look like carrots and grow to four to six inches long, although their thin skin is cream coloured and their flesh is white. They have a milder peppery taste than their red cousins, are filled to the brim with vitamin C and help with digestion.
Tasty grilled, braised or roasted, they are also enjoyed grated or sliced fresh into salads, stir-fries, curries and soups to add crunch. In some countries, such as France, they are boiled, coated in oil or butter, lightly spiced and eaten as a side dish. They can also be eaten raw as a snack.
