Radish - Watermelon - Raphanus sativus

Hardy Annual Heirloom. A uniquely colored and very large radish, the watermelon

radish grows to about 4" causing it often to be mistaken for a turnip. It has green shoulders that fade to brilliant white on the exterior and bright pink inner flesh. The white part is hotter and the interior is

peppery-sweet. Watermelon radishes are an extremely mild radish.

Soil and Water: Radishes prefer well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter. They have low nutrient requirements; especially avoid excess nitrogen to promote good root development. Preferred soil pH is 6.0-7.0.

Planting and Growing: Cool weather is needed for best development. Sow seed directly in late summer and fall rather than spring or else these radishes will bolt rather than form nice round roots.

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest is best when 3" or so in diameter. Watermelon radishes grow milder and woodier the longer you wait to harvest them. May keep 1-2 weeks in the fridge.
