Days to Maturity: 25 DAYS

Classic, smooth red bunching radish with attractive crispy white flesh.

Uniform roots are much less subject to pithiness than other radishes. Easy and fast to grow, with strong, widely adaptable tops. An All-American Selections (AAS) winner.

Easy to grow

Uniform .75-1" roots

Soil Nutrients and Requirements: Remove stones from loose, well drained soil with pH 5.8-6.8. Go easy on nitrogen, as excessive amounts can lead to big tops and little roots.

Planting depth: 1/4-1/2 inch

Plant spacing: for garden radishes 1 inch for daikon 4-6 inches. Thin if necessary to ensure even sizing.

Row Spacing: For garden radishes 8-12 inches, for daikon 12-16 inches.

When to Sow: Radishes can be direct seeded as soon as soil can be worked and are best adapted to the cooler temperatures and shorter day-length of spring and fall. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 65-85 degrees F. Seedlings emerge within a few days. Plant every 10 days for a continual supply. Winter radishes should be planted to mature around fall frost date.

Harvest radishes on time as they do not hold well in the field, especially in warm weather when roots tend to become pithy and pungent.
