Detailed Product Info

Watermelon Radish is your best shot at eating a local watermelon in January. Planted in late summer, these large radishes ripen in mid- to late fall, storing up the season's remaining light and vibrant colors before they fade. Harvested around first frost and stored somewhere cool, these roots add bright colors and flavors to the winter kitchen. The bearded fellow in this art, modeled after our co-founder Ken, is making Ken's favorite Watermelon Radish recipe. Find the full recipe here.

Can be stored in the refrigerator or in a root cellar for months, with the tops cut off. (Note: tops are are exceptionally good; enjoy in a saute or braising mix.)
