The radish tops and bottoms can be fodder for your compost bin or, for a fun project, you can try regrowing the radishes utilizing those cut-off parts. Radish tops and bottoms have the ability to regrow with each piece bearing different results. Regrowing radish tops will give you more greens while regrowing the bottom has the potential to grow new radishes. For more information visit the following link:
