Radish (Raphanus sativus). Cabbage relatives that come originally from Asia. We sell a wide variety of heirloom radishes, including both small (salad type) and larger, winter storage types. Growing radishes is easy, and they may be planted in spring or fall, and in most locations, right through summer as well. Direct-sow radish seeds where they are to grow, as they do not transplant well, and be sure to make repeated plantings to have salad types all season long. Storage types are best sown in late summer.
Renee's EXCLUSIVE – This virtual rainbow of colorful and tasty radishes includes purple, pink, red, white and gold radishes, all with crunchy white flesh. They are fast growing and ready to enjoy in well under a month from sowing. Add them for flavor and color to any green salad, enjoy for crispy snacks, or slice up for eye-catching appetizers with creamy dips. Tuck seeds into the garden in both early spring and fall, wherever you have room for a quick crop. Maturity 28 days.
Unusual jet-black skin makes a gorgeous contrast with the bright white flesh.
Also known as Black Winter radish, with rich spicy flavor excellent for salads and cruditee. Coarse outer skin allows for exceptionally long storage in the ground or the root cellar. Often eaten in Germany as a "beer radish", served thinly sliced with salt and paired with a light beer. Fall/winter crop. Stores well.
