Radishes

According to William Woys Weaver in 100 Vegetables and Where They Come From, radishes were viewed in the 18th century as great relievers of the common cold, powerful fortifiers of digestion, and useful in breaking down kidney stones. They develop more pungency in hot temperatures and dry conditions than in cool moist weather. Most are ready for harvest at about the size of a half dollar and will rapidly get woody if allowed to grow much larger (courtesy of Fedco Seed Catalog).

Radishes · Watermelon Compared to other radishes, expect these brilliant babies to be a bit milder and sweeter than regular, and much larger, averaging about three inches in diameter. Generally, their flesh is hotter toward the outside and sweeter toward the center, and they lose pungency as they mature (unlike most radishes).Crunchy and sweet, with just a hint of spice and a flavor, this radish is reminiscent of jicama. But most of all – it’s simply gorgeous! NOTE: This item is grown to order only.
