Heirloom Vegetable. An old heirloom variety grown from at least the late 1870’s that produces eye-pleasing scarlet red roots with white tips about 10-15 cm (4-6″) long. Roots are crisp and mild with a surprisingly sweet flavour. French Breakfast is a long time favourite summer radish that has stood the test of time.
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.
