The Watermelon radish, also known as Rooseheart or Red Meat, is an heirloom Chinese Daikon radish.
Watermelon Radish are green on the outside and pink on the inside. The Watermelon radish's flesh is white closest to the exterior becoming bright circular striations of pink and magenta. Hence the watermelon reference. Its flesh is tender crisp, succulent and firm. Its flavor is mild, only slightly peppery with almond-sweet notes. Depending on when harvested, Watermelon radishes can range in size from golf ball to soft ball and can be harvested at any size. Served fresh or cooked, hot or cold. Don't forget the healthy radish greens!
