One of my produce picks at the Somerville Farmer’s Market was a watermelon radish. Let it be known that I do not generally eat radishes. I usually pick around them in a salad, but this radish was being sampled at the market and was just so pretty. Maybe not as pretty as a red ripe strawberry, but a whole lot prettier than say, celeriac. The whole radish is about the size of a baseball, see?

And here it is sliced open, so you can see the gorgeous pink color. It definitely has a spicy taste! I brought the radish to work yesterday to share, and those who liked radishes in general enjoyed the flavor and the crunchy texture. One of the things I love to do is introduce myself and others to new produce, especially ones as pretty as this.

    Watermelon radishes are one of my favorite "oddball" pieces of produce. Looks like you got a huge one!

    Hope all continues to go well,
