The world of winter radishes is vast, colorful and inspiring. Watermelon Radish, Black Spanish Radish, Green Meat Radish, Daikon and more! They’re all great, but none have claimed our hearts like Blauer Winter. Maybe it’s their massive torpedo shape or their vibrant violet coloring. Maybe it’s their refreshing, slightly-spicy flavor that is incredible roasted, stir-fried or grated up raw in salads. We don’t need a single reason. A german staple and cold-hardy as heck, these lunkers will add a kick to any fall or winter dish.
