This gorgeous and delicious radish is an heirloom Chinese daikon. Watermelon radishes are known for their bright pink interior, just like a watermelon. Larger than other radishes, they can range from the size of a golf ball to as big as a softball. They are firm and crispy, with a mild taste that blends a bit of pepper and sweetness together.

cooking with watermelon radishes

These beauties can be eaten raw, which is a favorite amongst radish lovers since they keep their gorgeous coloring this way. Much like other radishes, watermelon radishes do not need to be peeled before eating, just scrubbed of any debris. They can also be pickled or cooked. Try roasting, braising or even mashing radishes!

How to pick + Store radishes

Choose radishes that feel heavy for their size. They should be firm and without blemish.

Radishes can be stored in a plastic bag or container in the crisper for a few weeks.
