The skin of the Misato Rose Radish runs from light pink to green, but it is the flesh that is the real treat, being bright pink, sweet, spicy and flavorful. This heirloom produces 3 to 4 inch roots and its unusually large, dark green leaves set it apart from other varieties. (55 days)
This cabbage-relative originally from Asia needs cooler conditions to be at its best but may be grown through the summer in all but the hottest climates. Salad types may be sown from earliest spring, at 2 to 3 week intervals.
