Watermelon Radish Seeds
A unique watermelon-colored radish with a crisp, sweet flesh. Light green to white outside, and dark red/purple center, deepens in color when exposed to sunlight, giving this radish its namesake ‘Watermelon’. This variety grows to approximately 3″ around, but can be harvested in the baby stage as well. This Asian type radish is best grown in cool soils. Enjoy it raw, pickled, or cooked.
