Radish Quotes

 The radish is "a vulgar article of the diet..." that has a "...remarkable power of causing flatulence and eructation."



“Radishes, though often eaten, are miserable things...”

‘The Young House-keeper’
by William Andrus Alcott (1846)


“The beet is the most intense of vegetables. The radish, admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent, not of passion. Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity. Beets are deadly serious.”

Tom Robbins, ‘A Cook's book of Quotations’


“So few people eat okra (more radishes are grown in this country) that it never even makes it onto the lists of Top 10 hated foods.”

Julia Reed
