Radish - Cherry Belle - Raphanus sativus
Annual Cherry Belle radishes are round and bright, cherry red, 1" in diameter, with 2_"-3" tops. The flesh is crisp, firm, and white. It's a good keeper and can be planted all summer long. This variety is a fast maturing, early-season radish, best used immature in salads and condiments.
Soil & Water: Radishes prefer well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter. They have low nutrient requirements; especially avoid excess nitrogen to promote good root development. Preferred soil pH is 6.0-7.0.
Planting & Growing: Cool weather is needed for best development. Sow seed directly wherever there is extra space in the garden. Radishes make good, living row markers for slower germinating crops like carrots.
Harvesting & Storage: Cherry Belle is used best when young and immature, less than 1" in diameter. They may keep 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator.
Did You Know? Radishes are a great source of vitamin C. From Holland, Cherry Belle is traditionally grown indoors or on soils high in organic matter.
