Lady Slipper Radish, MA (Boston) 2020

Fantastic! Once we all got past the early months of CV, this 2nd order from Pine Tree was processed and shipped out at lightning speed. Arrived quickly through USPS shipping. The Lady Slipper Radishes germinated at lightning speed as well --- 4 days. 30 days till harvested. This variety has done well in the heat of July and August too, without getting woody or pithy. Impressive for a cool season vegetable! Beautiful pink radishes that taste as good as they look! Large, light green edible leaves are easily incorporated into cooked dishes, adding extra nutrition.

Best Radishes we have found!

They keep well in the ground or fridge. Seldom woody and they will reseed if you let them. Mildly spicy, never HOT. Very dependable.

Best ever!!

I'm always trying new varieties. But these are hands down the best 'holding' radishes in all our trials. They may get big, but keep the tender crispness. Have had good luck with them self-seeding, too. Just harvested another dozen 11/13/2016 in Minnesota. Crazy year!

Best radish ever

I know that the description says that they become "pithy", but I find the opposite to be true, They seem to hold up in the heat better than any other I've tried.
