Red Meat (Watermelon) Radish Heirloom Garden Seed Non GMO
Unique watermelon-colored radish with a crisp, sweet flesh. Light green to white outside deepens in color when exposed to sunlight. Large 3-3½" round roots that are creamy white outside with a central burst of watermelon rose. Remarkably sweet, delicious taste. The flesh is crispy and mild, with a sweet flavor perfect for salads, garnishes, or cooking. This Asian type radish is best grown in cool soils. Best sown in late summer for a fall crop. 30-80 days.
Radishes require well-drained soils. Sow at any time during the season, beginning in early spring. Use 2-3" wide bands, 1/2" deep, rows 1' apart, or any row or bedding scheme that will eliminate unplanted ground to discourage weeds. Radishes are adversely affected by hot, dry weather. They remain in prime condition only a few days and should be grown rapidly with plenty of moisture to be mild, tender, and attractive. If growth is checked, roots may become tough, pithy, and too spicy.
