This radish is an unusual and colorful heirloom from China that could be called the Inside Out Radish. The large softball-sized globes are greenish-white on the outside, but have a bright reddish-pink heart on the inside. They have a milder flavor than most radishes. These watermelon radish seeds are a type of Japanese winter radish also known as a "daikon," which simply means "large root" in Japanese. Daikon radishes account for the largest percentage of any cultivated vegetable in Japan, and can be found in some form in nearly every meal of that country. * Since watermelon radish seeds are winter radishes, they should be planted about two months before the first expected fall frost. *Plant the radish seeds in very rich, deeply worked up soil about 1/2" deep and 1" apart; later, thin the seedlings 4-6" apart Packet contains 1g of GMO free seeds. All packets are handmade on a thick card stock for a chic look and feel. Some natural variation might occur.
