Characteristics

  • Organic, non-GMO, and open-pollinated 
  • Winter radish 
  • Stores well 
  • Large 2-6lb roots 

Instructions Remove stones from loose, well-drained soil with pH 5.8-6.8. Go easy on nitrogen, as excessive amounts can lead to big tops and little roots. Radishes can be direct seeded as soon as soil can be worked and are best adapted to the cooler temperatures and shorter day-length of spring and fall. The optimal soil temperature for germination is 65-85°F. Seedlings emerge within a few days. Plant every 10 days for a continual supply. Winter radishes should be planted to mature around the fall frost date. 

  • Plant 1/4-1/2" deep 
  • Plant Spacing:  for garden radishes 1”, for daikon 4-6”. Thin if necessary to ensure even sizing.
  • Row Spacing:  For garden radishes 8-12”, for daikon 12-16”.

Harvest & StorageHarvest radishes on time as they do not hold well in the field, especially in warm weather when roots tend to become pithy and pungent. Topped radishes will keep good quality for 3-4 weeks if stored at near-freezing temperatures with high humidity in semi-permeable containers.
