Appealing conical shape roots, red skin and rose-pink flesh, and a mild and refreshing flavour. Perfect added to stir fries with its crisp texture, and visually appealing when sliced into salads. Best sown late summer for autumn harvesting.
July to September
September to November
Sow thinly in shallow drills 1.5cm (1/2in) deep with 30-35cm (12-14in) between the rows. During hot weather water the base of the seed drills first before sowing seeds and covering with dry soil.
Radish should not be transplanted. Gradually thin seedlings to 10cm (4in) apart and harvest as required.
Ideal for late summer- autumn sowing, where roots will remain in good condition over a long period.
