55 days — Also known as 'Red Meat' and 'Continental Fancy', 'Watermelon' radish is an interesting variety in that it has white skin with tender, sweet, dark pink interiors. Grows fairly large in size (between a golf ball and a baseball). Does well as a late fall harvest variety. Each packet contains three grams, which is approximately 200 seeds.
Most radishes are a little too spicy for my tastes. I typically only like them cooked. This one was very mild and actually sweet. I enjoyed it cooked or in salads. Even my step-dad loved it, and he's usually not big on radishes. It does tend to go woody if left in too long, do be sure to harvest within a couple weeks of the time it matures.

VSC NOTES: And along with Amber's harvest recommendations, remember to plant radishes in succession, say five to ten days apart. Since they don't just sit and wait for you to pick and all tend to mature the same number of days from sowing, succession planting allows you to harvest over a greater period of time. ~Mike

Tasty and fast-growing
These radishes grew really fast and tasted great. The seeds produced large, even globes, and delicious greens. I DO highly recommend succession planting, as I planted mine all at once and couldn't harvest some before they got woody.

Tasty and pretty for the table
Ours did not grow as large as expected (I believe this to be a soil issue), but germinated reasonably well. They yield a larger amount of greens per root than 'Hailstone', though with a tougher texture. And the root flavor! It's hot but slow-developing and enjoyable. Also one of the most beautiful vegetables I've grown; slivered over a salad, they're certain to draw comment.
