Description

Very attractive, elongated gourmet variety. Mild, spicy bite with a scarlet top and a white bottom. The French consider radishes to be a toxin-eliminator, and suggest eating radishes for breakfast after a rich dinner or too much wine the night before. Pick when the radishes are 1” across; any larger than that, and they will be bitter and pithy. Superb in salads and shredded into coleslaw. Try them sautéed for a different side dish! Tolerant of heat and drought, but prefer cool spring temperatures. Easy to grow — perfect for introducing children to gardening. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
