Available now at Southern Fresh Foods in the Waikato, the Large Watermelon Radish is an heirloom variety of the Chinese daikon radish and a botanical member of the Brassica family.

The Large Watermelon Radish has a crisp, succulent flesh which is white closest to the exterior, with bright, circular patterns of pink in the centre, giving it the allusion of watermelon.

The flavour of the Large Watermelon Radish is mild and sweet, with slight peppery notes, making it perfect for salads.  Both the root and the green of the Large Watermelon Radish are an excellent source of vitamin C, especially when eaten raw.

Large Watermelon Radishes can be served cooked or raw, hot or cold, as a pickle, on sandwiches, in soups or roasted.

Southern Fresh Foods recommends the following recipe by Lisa Bryan from Downshiftology:

Watermelon Radish and Cucumber Salad

INGREDIENTS

4 watermelon radish
1 large cucumber
1½ cups microgreens
1 tsp black lava salt

Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing

3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp maple syrup
¼ tsp dijon mustard
pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

Use a mandolin to slice very thin slices of the watermelon radishes and cucumber.
Plate the salads by alternating slices of radish, cucumber and small handfuls of microgreens. Sprinkle the black lava salt on top.
Whisk together all dressing ingredients in a small bowl and drizzle on top of the salad.
