These smooth, attractive roots are white with green shoulders, and 15 cm (6 in) long. A better choice than the long types for rocky soils and better flavour, especially in warm weather. For fresh use, pickling, and storage.
Radishes are very quick growing, plant as early as possible in spring. Cool weather develops a fine mild flavor. In many cases Radishes fail to bulb properly in hot weather. If you desire Radishes over an extended time, plant at 1 week intervals, in a cooler shady place in the garden. Plant 1 cm (1/2 in) deep, 1 cm (1/2 in) apart in rows 45 cm (18 in) apart. Radishes grow best in lighter soils. If your soil is heavy work in lots of organic matter in the rows before sowing seed.
