Radish Harvest

Zlata Radish

by Amy on June 21, 2011

The first vegetable to be harvested from the garden this summer is (drumroll please…) the Zlata Radish!

My friend Gayla shared these yellow radish seeds with me and they were one of the first sets of seeds to be sown this spring. They germinated very well, and I only had to fill in a couple of “gaps” with some French Breakfast Radishes, which are quickly catching up to these beauties.

The Territorial Seed Company describes Zlata:

This flaxen, soft-skinned beauty comes to us from Poland. Zlata is a silky yellow, medium-sized, round to plum shaped radish with a crisp, bright white interior. Its crunchy texture and excellent, mildly spicy flavor will add zing to any relish tray or salad. Great for growing in spring and autumn, and resistant to bolting and splitting.

Radishes are one of those vegetables that I never buy in the grocery store. I only eat them when I grow them, which is most summers. They are so wonderfully peppery when fresh out of the garden, and this bunch was no exception.

I sliced them thinly and tossed them into a pasta salad I made over the weekend.
