Heirloom Vegetable. Here is a delightful looking summer radish with 2.5-5 cm (1-2″) diameter cherry-red roots that have a pleasing, mild flavoured white flesh. Cherry Belle holds great potential for extending the season as it forces well under glass and maintains its superior eating quality for a long time. An ideal variety for late spring and early summer plantings. Introduced in 1949.
How to Grow
90-100 seed/gram Sow early in a sunny site as soon as the ground is workable in the spring. 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.
