This hefty heirloom variety will surprise you with its size and taste. The China Rose Radish is a perfect bite of freshness in the fall crop when everything else in the garden is gone. Roots grow to 5 inches in 55 days, and they’re great for sprouts and greens, too! A favorite of market gardeners.
Each packet contains approximately 200 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
This cool-weather crop can be planted early, as soon as the soil can be worked in spring and weeks before the last frost. Sow directly into prepared beds — no more than 1/2 inch deep — with rows spaced 8-18 inches apart. Thin to one seedling for every two inches.
Pull roots when they are of usable size — usually one inch in diameter — and relatively young. Check often, as they can turn from tasty to terrible in a short period of time.
