While at the Columbia Farmers' Market this past Saturday I was intrigued by the variety of radishes one of the vendors had displayed. What really caught my attention was the yellowish-brown radish. I had never seen this particular variety before.
The display had the radishes bundled together with a rubberband at the leaves. They were then placed on the table so the bulbs were face up so you could easily see each of the variety of colors. Each variety was then placed in rows.
The five different varieties from right to left:
1. Longu Red - elongated red shape with white ends
2. Cherry Belle - solid red globe (deeper red color)
3. Purple Plum - solid red globe (lighter red color)
4. Hailstone (also called White Globe) - solid white globe
5. Helios - yellow globe
