Seed Details:
Great for small spaces as this radish boasts a shorter top than most varieties. Radish can be planted to discourage cucumber beetle, squash bug and stink bug.
Direct seed with light cover as soon as the earth can be worked at 5 to 10mm deep. Radishes like cooler weather conditions so it is advisable to provide some shade in hotter months to prevent bolting.
Cool, nutrient-rich soil that remains moist, not wet, will ensure less bolting. Hill up around the bases once the bulb starts to form to Protect radish from the hot afternoon sun and encourage a larger root bulb. Best grown in early Spring and Fall plantings.
Historic Uses:
Radishes and their greens are a great source of vitamin C, folic acid and potassium. They are known for their antiseptic, anti-arthritic and anti-cancer qualities. Radishes are great for the prevention of a sore throat, fever reduction and assisting with conditions such as bronchitis or asthma. Radishes also increase the production of bile, assisting in maintaining a healthy liver and gallbladder.
