Eating radishes daily improves your health to a great extent. Radishes are rich in vitamins, folic acid, and anthocyanins. They are considered effective cancer-fighting agents. The vitamins present in radishes can treat skin disorders. They help in improving the functioning of the liver and gall bladder.

And this is big and long Radish I have ever seen..

Amaranth leaves
Amaranth species are cultivated and consumed as a leaf vegetable in many parts of the world. There are four species of Amaranthus documented as cultivated vegetables in eastern Asia: Amaranthus cruentus, Amaranthus blitum, Amaranthus dubius, and Amaranthus tricolor. In Indonesia and Malaysia, leaf amaranth is called bayam. In the Philippines, the Ilocano word for the plant is “kalunay”; the Tagalog word for the plant is kilitis or “kulitis”.
