Watermelon radish is a showy cousin of the daikon, both radishes in the brassica family. As the name suggests it has a striated bright pinkish interior and creamy white to pale green exterior. They are firm, sweet and crunchy with just a little pepperiness.
They are delicious raw or lightly pickled and a beautiful addition to any slaw or even stir fry. You can also roast them with other root vegetables, tossed in a little oil and salt.
