On the outside, with its pale white skin, this ball-shaped radish looks boring. But inside awaits a splash of pink-colored flesh, truly like a watermelon.
Crisp and sweet taste, milder than many radishes. It is better to peel the hard skin. Ideal for carpaccio, can be eaten raw, roasted or stewed. Great if you wish to cause a sensation or want the children to discover radishes !

Also known as potato bean, hopniss, Indian potato, hodoimo, America-hodoimo, cinnamon vine, American groundnut, or groundnut.
Quebec-native climbing plant. It belongs to the legume family (<i>Fabaceae</i>). Grows well on river banks and shores, but also in the garden. Its flowers have a strong perfume, reminiscent of glycine. It is sometimes referred to as 'glycine tubéreuse' (tuberous glycine). The bean part of some of its common names refers to the edible beans produced from its flowers, when climate allows. Its tubers, also edible, are interconnected by a liana-root giving it a rosary-like appearance.
The apios was widely eaten by First Nations. Nowadays, it is still common to see it growing where their settlements once were. Highly nutritional, it contains up to 18% proteins, 3x that of potatoes. It can be eaten boiled or fried. However, make sure to peel it thoroughly as the skin contains latex.
Please note, although very rare, that some people might feel unwell from <i>Apios americana</i> consumption.
