    I don’t know anything at all about a watermelon radish. Elephant garlic has a higher sugar content than regular garlic, but I’m unaware of exactly how much more. Because of this fact I would use it cautiously if at all.

    I just bought a watermelon radish at Whole Foods yesterday! They’re new at mine. I haven’t tried it yet, but the cashier said it’s milder and blander than regular radish, which makes me think it’s probably not any more sugary. The one they had cut open kind of smelled like kohlrabi, or a broccoli stem. I bought it mostly because 1) radishes are delicious, 2) it’s pretty! (Light green outside, bright pinkish-red inside)

    I’m obviously slightly nerding out on trying a new vegetable.

    Way to nerd out, Shay. As far as I can recall, nerding out has never caused anyone problems on the forum.

    😀

    As an update, they’re like a delicious pink-hued lovechild of jicama and broccoli stems.

    how does black garlic have added sugar? does the fermenting process make sugar or something? i don’t understand. Although, the taste is quite sweet. I just discovered that today, and had no idea. No good for the diet though it seems, cuz I was having pretty hard sugar cravings afterwards(was sleep deprived as well, which is always a junk food trigger for me)

    I’ve had those radishes before! They are pretty and taste similar to kohlrabi. What did you do with them?

    I would assume elephant garlic would be fine, it must contain more sugar than regular garlic because it’s more closely related to onion then garlic.

    1 tablespoon of chopped onion has .43 grams of sugar
    1 tablespoon of chopped elephant garlic has 0 grams of sugar

    I once had a doctor tell me to stay away from onions because they are too high in sugar. (I know! crazy right!)

    The elephant garlic was labeled with 8 grams sugar! I like the watermelon radish on salad, will try roasting them soon.

    I ate my watermelon radishes cut into sticks with guacamole. Yum.

    8 grams? Was that for the whole head? I simply cannot believe that elephant garlic has more sugar than onion.

    Here’s the nutrition info I found online:
