Radishes

According to William Woys Weaver in 100 Vegetables and Where They Come From, radishes were viewed in the 18th century as great relievers of the common cold, powerful fortifiers of digestion, and useful in breaking down kidney stones. They develop more pungency in hot temperatures and dry conditions than in cool moist weather. Most are ready for harvest at about the size of a half dollar and will rapidly get woody if allowed to grow much larger (courtesy of Fedco Seed Catalog).
