Raphanus sativus

Unlike many other radishes, the intensity of this radish lessens as it matures. The flesh is hotter toward the outside & sweeter toward the centre. Growing to approx 7.5cm in diametre, it displays a white outer skin at the top with green shoulders & a pink base that covers a bright red to magenta inner flesh. This amazing Chinese heirloom radish produces large roots.
