Germ 5-7 days
Imported from Germany, this radish retains its high quality from the size of a marble to the size of a cue ball (or larger). It does not get woody or spongy, and rarely splits, handling drought-like conditions well. Scarlet skin and white flesh is crisp and mild at any size. Plants should be thinned to 1” or more for the real “giants.” 150 seeds
Outdoors- Sow 1/2” deep, 1/2 -1” apart in early spring. Thin to 1-2’ apart, soon after they emerge
Harvest- 3-4 weeks after planting at 1” in diameter, pull them promptly as they rapidly decline becoming tough and pithy
Tips- They need rapid growth for optimum results, provided by fertile soil and consistent moisture. For continuous harvest make successive planting every 7-10 days when weather is still cool.
