Trying something new

Watermelon Radishes, 6 x 6 " oil on archival panel, ©2015, Fay Terry

$100, free shipping

The watermelon radish is an heirloom Chinese Daikon radish.  It is a member of the Brassica (mustard) family along with arugula, broccoli, and turnips. I stopped at Whole Foods in Cary because I love their salad bar, and they had these beautifully sliced watermelon radishes. They are delicious and very mild so naturally I headed over to the produce department after lunch and bought some to bring home. They are my new favorite snack. They ranged in size from golf ball to tennis ball size and I chose small ones
thinking they would be more flavorful than the big ones.

They really are a very pretty vegetable.  I'll be planting these in the garden next year- too late to start from seed now because it usually turns hot by the beginning of May if not sooner and they are a cool weather veggie.
