Heirloom Vegetable. Quick as a wink to grow! A delightful cherry red root that has solid, crisp, very sweet and mild tasting flesh. This is an extra early variety that forces well under glass and maintains its good eating quality for an extended period. Try this variety for late spring/early summer plantings. Introduced in 1949.
How to Grow
90-100 seed/gram Sow early varieties in a sunny site as soon as the ground is workable in the spring. Winter radishes are generally sown in mid-summer. Sow seed every two weeks 12 mm (1/2″) deep and about 2.5 cm (1″) apart in rows about 30 cm (12″) apart. Keep soil evenly moist during germination and growth. Harvest in 3-4 weeks when the roots have reached the size of a large marble. One packet sows approximately 6 m (20’) of row.
