Radish - White Beauty - Raphanus sativus
Annual Heirloom. This white radish produces mild, round, roots. It's an excellent variety for open cultivation or forcing in cold frames over the winter. A good selection for home garden and market growers. It was a favorite in roadside taverns in previous generations.
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 in fall or early spring. Radishes make good, living row markers for slower germinating crops like carrots.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest is best when young and immature, less than 1" in diameter. May keep 1-2 weeks in the fridge.
Did You Know? Radishes are a great source of vitamin C. The name "radish" comes from the Greek word for "Fast Appearing".
