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.
