Watermelon Radishes At Mom's Organic Market
We found watermelon radishes at a party. Cool city party where the guys bought their vegetables at the Dupont Circle farmers market.
They're crisp. They're mild. None of the astringent taste that keep me away from radishes usually. Plus, watermelon radishes look super-cool. The outside is white, and the inside is magenta. (Like watermelons -- white rind around red flesh.)
If you cut across the radish, you get thin slices that look like red dye is spreading from inside. They're great in salads, and they're pretty enough to just lay out on a vegetable tray. So far, I have only found them at Mom's Organic Market in Jessup.
