Watermelon radish is characterized by scarlet red flesh with a green/white skin, grown from late-summer planting (throughout August) for autumn harvest and storage for winter use. The flavor and texture of 'Misato Rose' is sweet and turnip-like, with a mild radish finish. Spaced 4" apart, these roots get 4-6" in diameter, and make some serious winter food that is strikingly colorful and nutritious. Makes a fantastic ingredient for kim chi, is beautiful when shredded with cole slaw and carrot, or sliced and slivered into winter salads. This is my favorite new vegetable this year, and we plan to grow a lot of it next year. Not suitable for spring planting.
