Heirloom. Oblong roots grow 1¾" long and ¾" wide. Scarlet skin, shades to white at base. White flesh is crisp and mildly pungent when young. Fast and easy to grow, radishes are best in cool weather and planted in a sunny location.
Sow radish seeds in well-worked soil after danger of frost in early spring, again in late summer for fall crop. In frost free areas, sow in the fall. Sow thinly in rows about 6" apart. Cover with 1/2" of fine soil; firm lightly and keep evenly moist. Seedlings emerge in 4-6 days.
How to Grow
Thin to stand about 2" apart. Water continuously and evenly. Avoid over-fertilizing radish plants.
Pull spring radishes when they are the proper size for the type, about 25 days after planting. Finish harvest before warm weather comes and before the roots become woody or pithy. Store in plastic bags in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks with their tops cut off. Harvest winter or fall radishes as needed in fall. Dig all remaining roots before ground freezes and store throughout the winter (use as needed).
