Here is the Purple Plum Radish, Raphanus sativus. It is a light purple almost dark pink radish that has a slight sweet crispy radish flavor. The skin is purple with a white flesh inside and get to 3/4 to 1 inches in size. They are a mild type but we found that every so many will be a bit more spicy then others. These are great in salads! Radishes can be useful as companion plants for many other crops, probably because their pungent odor deters such insect pests as aphids. This is a great starter vegetable for new gardeners. Open pollinated, about 40 days.
