Slice through the bland looking white exterior of this radish to reveal its true beauty. Resembling a mini watermelon with white 'rind' surrounding a bright pink interior. Deliciously flavoured. You'll never see this one on the supermarket shelf.
Radishes are closely related to cabbages, so their requirements are much the same. It is essential to sow radishes thinly, about one seed every 5cm, any closer and they may fail to develop an adequate root for harvesting. The young leaves can be used in salads. Grow radishes with plenty of water and nutrients, as hot, dry weather causes hot, pithy roots.
