A very purple radish

Today I harvested this year’s very first radish. Very purple and very pretty! The variety is called Plum purple and the colour is just amazing.

    I’ve eaten most of our radishes already (at least the first round; I planted some few weeks later and these will be ready in about a week). Had several different varieties – red, purple, white, yellow, but next year will only grow French Breakfast – these taste the best :)

    That’s beautiful. Does it have the same crisp and slightly spicy flavor of regular radishes?

    Radishes are so good with some butter and sea salt!

    A very pretty radish it is. Will you plant more throughout the summer?

    Markus: haha, tack!

    Pille: I agree that the French breakfast are very good! But I do enjoy the different colours.

    D: It tastes just as normal radish, ie a bit spicy.

    Lucy: I try to plant new radishes every 2-3 weeks or so, as they grow very quickly.

    WOW! that is an amazing color purple. I could have a dress in that color.

    I always saw the “Easter Egg” color radishes in California but never here. I guess you have to grow them yourself in Swedish…
