The Story of French Breakfast
This very early maturing garden radish is of French origin and was listed for sale in the United States in 1875 by James J. . Gregory of Marblehead, Massachusetts. It is also known as 'Radis Demi-long Rose a Bout Blanc'.
Radishes may have been developed and domesticated originally in southeast Asia. There are a few accounts of radish varieties in ancient Greece and Rome, and over time large, mild and white varieties of radishes were developed in China and Japan.
