Antique horticultural treasure from China of unearthly beauty. Large 3–3½” round roots that are creamy-white outside, with a vivid burst of watermelon-rose color at the center. Flesh is crispy, mild, and refreshing, with a sweet flavor perfect for salads, garnishes, or pickling. Enjoy roasted or sautéed with parsnips, carrots, or other root vegetables. Best grown in cool weather. Sow in late summer for a fall crop.
