Here is the Watermelon Radish, Raphanus sativus acanthiformis. It is also know as the Rooseheart, Red Meat or Beauty Heart radish in America. It originated in China where it was known as Shinrimei (Xin Li Mei) radish and is considered an heirloom Chinese Daikon radish. It looks just like a watermelon when sliced in half! They can range in size from golf ball to softball and has a greenish rind with a white-pink inside. 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. best picked young before they get big. Open pollinated, about 40 days.
