Radishes are healthier than strawberries, producers have claimed.

Norfolk-grown radish was harvested this week, with the early season hardy Spring Star variety the first to hit shelves.

Growers are keen to promote the fact that recent studies show radishes contain three times more disease-fighting anthocyanins than strawberries, and the same compounds that make broccoli a superfood.

Some 70% of the UK radish crop is produced by Feltwell Growers and marketed by The Shropshire Group.
