Organic French Breakfast Radish is an early heirloom radish that has been grown since the 1880s. The beautiful rose-scarlet roots are oblong with a blunt white tip, 2″ long, 3/4 ” diam and a small tender taproot. The crisp white flesh has a distinct mildly pungent flavor. This is a top quality old-fashioned favorite.
Planting and Care: Directly seed into rich well-amended soil in full sun (or light shade for summer plantings) as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring. Repeat every two weeks except during hot weather. Germination temperature: 45-85 deg. Water regularly and thin to 2″. Fertilize when seedlings reach the 4 leaf stage.
Harvest: Pull individual roots when young and mild. Beginning when the roots are about 1/2 ” (12mm) wide so the others will have room to grow.
Your Health: Radishes are good sources of Vitamin C, folic acid and potassium as well as other minerals.
Radishes like to be planted with beets, bush beans, pole beans, carrots, chervil, cucumbers, lettuce, melon, nasturtium, parsnip, peas, spinach and any members of the squash family. Radishes should not be planted with hyssop, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and turnips.
