Watermelon Radish (Raphanus sativus) This heirloom daikon radish originates from China. A very popular ball-shaped radish revealing a distinct colour pattern when sliced open. Its deep green shoulder, white skin, and bright red flesh resemble tiny watermelons although they do not taste like watermelons! The flesh is quite crisp and has a mild-sweet flavour. Thrives in cool growing conditions. (55 days)
