Watermelon radishes are an heirloom variety of daikon radishes and originated in China, where they are called shinrimei. They’re a root vegetable and member of the Brassica family, which also includes arugula, broccoli, and cabbage. The watermelon radish doesn’t actually taste like watermelon. Instead, the flesh, which is green around the exterior with a deep pink to bright red center, bears quite a resemblance to its namesake. Watermelon radishes are larger than regular radishes and can range from the size of a golf ball to that of a softball. They’re firm and crisp with a mild taste that’s a blend of slightly peppery and slightly sweet. These radishes are absolutely amazing in salads.

Nutritional Value:
Consuming watermelon radish is a great way to boost your intake of vitamins and minerals, as it is rich in phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C. This colorful vegetable is also a good source of phytochemicals and antioxidants.

Growing Instructions:
Since watermelon radish seeds are winter radishes, they should be planted about two months before the first expected fall frost. Plant the daikon radish seeds in very rich, deeply worked up soil about 1/2" deep and 1" apart; later, thin the seedlings 4-6" apart. Radishes do well with consistently moist soil and the addition of organic matter such as compost. Do not allow the soil to dry out, but also avoid overwatering as this can cause splitting.
