Watermelon Radish (37 Days)

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.

Watermelon radish

I shared seeds with two friends , we are in 3 different growing zones. Radishes germinated quickly, tops grew quickly but none of us ever had radishes develop. We started seeds indoors and direct sowed. Same results for both - very disappointing

Hi Kate, I'm sorry that you had problems with the Watermelon Radish. There are a few things that can cause a radish not to produce a bulb. They like to grow in cooler temperatures. If you experienced a drastic change from cool to very hot, they will just bolt. Another may be that there is too much nitrogen in the soil. One more reason, that the soil is not loose. If you have clay like soil, they won't have enough room to spread. Hope this helps, Pinetree Garden Seeds

Cool color with exceptional flavor and size

Fast-growing and no bugs, yet. Can get huge and still taste great. Not too spicy.
