Planting and Harvesting Tips:
This hardy vegetable prefers cooler climates and grows best in well drained, loose soil. Select a site with plenty of sun and dig down at least 10 inches to promote good root development. Sow successive crops all season long, starting 2-4 weeks before last frost in spring and continuing until a month before first frost in fall. Thin as plants develop and apply 4-8 inches of mulch to maintain moisture and limit weeds.
Begin harvest when roots reach 1 inch across (typically 55 to 70 days). Do not allow to grow larger than 3 inches or they will be tough and woody. Harvest greens before they reach 6 inches for best flavor — perfect for salads!
