HEIRLOOM If we are what we eat, let’s be this beautiful! We just love these massive, crisp and marvelously juicy watermelon radishes, so sweet without any radish heat.
Harvested before a hard frost and stored well, watermelon radishes are easily enjoyed all winter in curries, soups, roasted and grated fresh as salad and slaw! We also ferment Organic Watermelon Radish in our kimchi each autumn.
Real talk on winter storage roots: Grow Watermelon radish for color; grow Noir Long turnip for flavor!
