The Watermelon radish (Raphanus sativus) is a mild variety made up of an edible globular root attached to thin stems and wavy green leaves. Its exterior is creamy white in color with pale green shoulders, a sign of the chlorophyll it received from exposure to the sun. The Watermelon radish's flesh is white closest to the exterior becoming bright circular striations of pink and magenta, hence the watermelon reference. Its flesh is tender-crisp, succulent, and firm. Its flavor is mild, only slightly peppery with almond-sweet notes. Depending on when harvested, Watermelon radishes can range in size from golf ball to softball. Look for Watermelon radishes with smooth skin free of deep cracks and for an exceptionally pink interior look for radishes with pink taproots.

The seeds started germinating after just a few days! Really excited to see the end result. Planted them in a few random areas in my garden after a failed crop of radishes earlier in the season just to see where I went wrong and to have some fun with a new variety
