This large, white skinned radish with greenish shoulders has a bright red interior that looks like a watermelon when sliced. The flavor is mild and sweet. While it will grow to the size of a turnip it is best eaten when smaller. Prefers a cooler climate, so plant this seed mid-summer for a late fall/early winter harvest. 300 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.
