Cincinnati Market Radish (Heirloom, 30 Days)

Heirloom mid-1800s. Presents itself more like a carrot, generous in size 6” or more, with thin scarlet skin and white brittle flesh. The oldest varieties of radish were of the long type, this being one of the most widely grown in the 1800s until replaced by smaller round radishes. We found it adept for small spaces, providing good yields from our raised beds. Also known as Long Scarlet.
