$6.99
    Description

    SCIENTIFIC NAME:
    Raphanus sativus

    CULTURE:
    Radishes require well-drained soils with a pH range of 5.8–6.8. Sow at any time during the season, beginning in early spring. Use 2–3" wide bands, seed about 3/4–1" apart (about 35 seeds/ft.), 1/2" deep, rows 1' apart, or any row or bedding scheme that will eliminate unplanted ground to discourage weeds. Radishes are adversely affected by hot, dry weather. They remain in prime condition only a few days and should be grown rapidly with plenty of moisture to be mild, tender, and attractive.

    INSECTS AND PESTS:
    Use floating row covers at time of planting to control flea beetles and cabbage root maggots.

    HARVESTING AND STORAGE:
    Harvest promptly to avoid pithiness, beginning at about 3-4 weeks when roots are the size of a large marble. Bunch or top, hydrocool, and refrigerate. Topped radishes will keep 3–4 weeks in good, crisp condition if kept at 32°F (0°C), 95% relative humidity, and in breathable packaging.

    Contains 250 seeds.
