Similarly, you may ask, how can you tell if a radish is bad?
When it comes to radishes, the signs of spoilage are as follows:
- Soft or soggy texture. A fresh radish is firm to the touch.
- Visual signs of decay. Mold or anything similar means the veggie is done for.
- Off or funny smell. Radishes have a very subtle aroma, so if yours suddenly have a strong smell, discard them.
Similarly, what to do with radishes that are too hot? Place the cut radishes into a bowl of ice water and leave in the fridge. The longer the radishes sit in the cold water the milder their taste will become. As such, the length of the ice bath should be adjusted according to individual taste.
Thereof, why are some radishes hot and some are not?
The spiciness is caused by sulfur compounds in the radish. Some varieties are readily distinguishable, such as a few common varieties of black radish that aren't spicy at all. But since others can be hard to tell at sight, ask the farmer. Unfortunately, if you go to a grocery store, you usually only get one option.
