Rattail Radish (50-55 Days)

Unlike other radishes this one is grown for its seed pod, not its root. Indigenous to southern portions of Asia, the versatile pods are a staple for many gardeners around the world. The zesty radish flavor and snappy texture is adaptable in many recipes. Try experimenting with it. Begin harvesting seed pods at about 2 inches. Keep harvested to extend production throughout the season.                     

 40 seeds 


Raphanus sativus

Germination: 5-7 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-75ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2" deep

Sowing Outdoors: Starting in early spring. Sow a few seeds every 6", thin to 12" apart, soon after the seedlings emerge.

Harvest: Start harvesting pods when they are thick as a pencil or 2-3" long. 

Tips: Provided fertile soil. Mulch and keep well watered through dry spells. To encourage more pod growth cut off the ones that become too large and fat.

rattail radish

Shopping at Pinetree seeds is easy whether I go to the store in person or by mail.The radishes germinated well and grew very tall, flopping over the squash leaves I planted as the main companion. I’ve had the rattails before and have enjoyed them in stirfrys.

Rattail radish

I remember growing and enjoying these radishes years ago, so I was happy to see them offered again through Pinetree. I was late getting them planted in my high-desert garden and neglected to use my rabbit barriers, so the harvest was sparse indeed. The watermelon radishes fared much better in the same conditions. I really appreciate the wide assortment of herbs and vegetables at reasonable cost available through Pinetree.
