Watermelon Radishes are sometimes compared to Cinderella: If Cinderella were a vegetable, she'd be a Watermelon Radish. Like Cinderella before her transformation, the exterior of a watermelon radish isn't all that nice. But open it, and all is magic: the interior of this root vegetable practically sparkles with hot pink, turning heads as it suddenly appears as the belle of the ball!
The watermelon radish doesn't actually taste like watermelon. Instead, the flesh, which is green around the exterior with a deep pink to bright red center, has quite a resemblance to normal radishes.
Watermelon radishes are larger than regular radishes and can range from the size of a golfball to that of a softball. They're firm and crisp with a mild taste that's a blend of slightly peppery and slightly sweet.
