Chinese Red Meat Radish

         
 
23 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
The colorful “Beauty Heart” radish of historic China has 4” round roots with white-andgreen skin, but the magic is in their rose-red center, which is sweet, crisp, and delicious. A good radish to add color to salads and stir-fries; must be grown in cool weather and does best when fall planted. These taste incredible when harvested in the late fall or early winter, sweet and flaverful, almost like a crisp fruit. Sometimes called “Watermelon Radish” at market. Among the most important vegetables in our kitchens each winter. It is a root that most kids love and packs an extra load of antioxidants in its sweet, red flesh.

What are the pros? Taste, easy to grow, broccoli?

What are the cons? Leaves grow large

Review:

I'm a bit of an inexperienced gardener, but these radishes grew great. I planted them in the spring, however, so they never quite matured and instead grew very large leaves and smallish bulbs. The bulbs were a bit bitter and very spicy, but that may just be because they weren't mature. I ended up mostly using them for their greens, which were also very delicious. What was very odd, is that the leaves began producing broccoli-like FLORETS in the middle of the leaves, which actually tasted very similar to broccoli. Not sure if this is normal...

What are the pros? Purple flowers

What are the cons? Quick to bolt

Review:

I planted these in the spring along with other radishes which quickly matured. These should have went in the ground in the fall. Quick to bolt, but beautiful purple flowers in my garden. I will try these again this year with hopes of eating delicious Chinese red meat radish. None of mine matured due to the summer heat

What are the pros? easy to grow, tasty, keep well

What are the cons? none

Review:

I don't particularly like European radishes, but I love these Asian Watermelon/Red Meat radishes and have been growing them for years. They are sweeter, less spicy, bigger, and have a better texture than the European types. Plus, they are just so pretty when sliced! I plant these in July as a fall crop, after harvesting garlic out of the same bed. Germination has always been excellent. These radishes seem to keep indefinitely in the refrigerator. I harvest a big batch and eat them all winter.

What are the pros? Too easy, beautiful

What are the cons? Radishes

Review:

I don't like radishes. And yet, after growing these??? Still don't like them but boy oh boy did these radishes grow well. Planted early March, harvested in the middle of May. Absolutely beautiful radish, the color it adds to everything I eat is wonderful. But since I don't like radishes, they must be cooked! This grows very nicely, no bug problems, near 100% germination rate, and super easy to harvest. If only I liked them more...

Review:

I had gotten watermelon radish from another vendor in 2015, and they were the first radishes I actually liked. They were more sweet, less spicy. This year, I planted these. Only got maybe 70% germination, and the ones that did grow turned out extremely spicy and woody. I would up pouring them in a casserole of roasted root veggies, and they still stood out as being spicy.
