A watermelon radish is, on first glance, a plain greenish-white root. But slice it open and it reveals a stunning fuchsia interior. They're also known as red-meat or beauty-heart radishes, and you can find seeds at Kitazawa Seed Company (kitazawaseed.com). Roasting radishes gives them a smooth texture and sweet, earthy flavor similar to that of roasted turnips.
