DESCRIPTION

Unusual, large white 3-4" round roots have deep green shoulders that fade to creamy white outside with a sunburst of intense watermelon red in the center. Delicious flesh is extremely mild, sweet with a hint of pepper and crispy. Early harvest of smaller roots provides best color and mildest flavor. Vigorous tops make harvesting easy. Excellent in salads, as a garnish, cooked, fermented or pickled. Very popular at gourmet restaurants and Fresh Markets.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
