The easiest and quickest vegetable to grow! Other than avoiding heavy clay or very sandy soil, radishes are not fussy. Sow early varieties in a sunny site as soon as the ground is workable in the spring – winter radishes are generally sown in mid-summer.
This variety has deep red skin and crisp white flesh. At full size the roots are round and slightly more than 1in / 2.5cm across. Holds well without becoming pithy. Grows well in containers. Harvest when young and mild.

Plants are hardy and withstand mild frosts. Direct sow seed into the garden several weeks before the last spring frost date. Thin seedlings to at least 2 inches apart as crowding will affect quality. Choose a sunny location in a fertile soil with good drainage
