What on earth is a watermelon radish, and what do I do with it?

What it is:  Watermelon radishes are an heirloom (old-time) variety of Chinese Daikon radishes.  They have a thin layer of green flesh on the outside, with brilliant pink flesh inside, making them look much like  watermelon when sliced. Hence the name! Feel free to slice one open at the market to show off their beauty!

How it tastes:  Like other types of radishes, watermelon radishes are crunchy, crisp and a little juicy with pungent, peppery, and/pr spicy kicks over mild sweet notes.

Health benefits:  Watermelon radishes are 89% water so they are hydrating!  (We don’t think of hydration as being so important in the winter, but with all this dry air, it’s essential to get lots of water in our bodies.)  Watermelon radishes also have lots of Vitamin A and C, making them great for skin and immunity

Storage tips: Store whole watermelon radishes in the fridge for up to a month.  Once sliced, store partially used watermelon radishes in a plastic bag or reusable container in the fridge for up to several days.

How to eat:  Gently scrub watermelon radishes to remove any dirt (they are roots so they were underground when growing!).  Then slice and eat, add raw to dishes, pickle, or roast! Many people like these radishes with just a smear of butter and a sprinkle of salt, too.  See the recipes section for more ideas.
