60-70 days. The colorful “Beauty Heart” radish of historic China has 4-inch round roots with white-and-green 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 flavorful, 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.
