Watermelon Radish are an heirloom radish with vibrant pink-red flesh and cream-white outer that looks like a watermelon slice when cut. Watermelon radishes are peppery and slightly sweet in flavor. Excellent steamed, braised, raw as a snack, and radish greens make an excellent salad green or garnish. Also a great source of potassium, vitamin C, and fiber.

Soil Preparation and Fertilizing:
Planting:Plant seeds as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. Use a hoe handle or stick to make a 1/2 inch furrow deep down the center of the ridge. Plant 3-4 seeds in the furrows spaced 1 inch apart within the rows. Cover lightly with loose soil then sprinkle with water. You may make several plantings 8-10 days apart for a steady supply of radishes. They will be ready for harvest about 4-5 weeks from planting.
