This week’s bag features watermelon radishes: edible root crops with thin stems and wavy green leaves—all rich in vitamin C. Their exteriors are creamy white with pale green shoulders and a rosy color inside resembling that of a watermelon! Its flavor is mild, only slightly peppery with almond-sweet notes.
Watermelon radishes are edible all the way through– from skin to core. Scrub well before eating. Greens can be used in soups, stir-fries or with eggs. Use the radishes raw in salads, sliced thinly as an appetizers, or for garnish. They are excellent pickled in vinegar and salt.
