Independence Radishes

I have learned about more kinds of radishes since I started doing these small paintings than I ever knew of before. At the farmer's market this weekend, these were laid out in huge colorful pyramids, and labeled "Independence Radishes," I'm assuming in honor of the holiday. An online search turned up nothing for "Independence," only a variety called "Easter Egg" radishes, but Easter is long gone for this year, so I suppose this was just an example of farmer's market marketing.

Great painting! Maybe they're Independence radishes because they're red, white and purple-blue?
