Abstract The Brassicaceae family encompasses numerous species of great agronomic importance, belonging to such genera as Brassica, Raphanus, Sinapis, and Annoracia.1 Raphanus sativus is a perennial plant that belongs to the Brassicaceae family, and it is native to China and Japan. The radish is eaten raw; the bulbs and the leafs are edibles and are used for the preparation of salads in some Mediterranean areas. The R sativus bulb is spherical and red and has white pulp, with a pungent flavor and lobed leafs with irregular edges. The literature reports reactions to Raphanus niger, which is considered a variety of R sativus.
