  • Don't be fooled by the dull outside colors of this weeks Watermelon radish, on the inside you will see a colorful and versatile radish. Unfortunately, this root vegetable does not actually taste like a watermelon but rather resemble the color of the fruit. Instead, they are apart of the Brassica family, with a firm and crisp texture and a taste of mild peppery and sweet flavor. There are many ways to incorporate Watermelon radishes into your meals: pickled, shaved, roasted, or added to your salad.
