29 days. Raphanus sativus. Open Pollinated. Plant produces excellent yields of 1 ½ to 4” diameter red radishes. They call these radish giant for a reason as they can grow up to 6" in diameter! They are crisp and mild. They stay very mild even when very large. Regardless of size, the roots remain sweet and crisp with no cracking. Perfect for salads, vegetable platters, gourmet dishes, dips, and garnishes. Excellent choice for home gardens and market growers. A heirloom variety from Germany.

Radish Seed Planting Information:

Plant seeds outdoors directly in the garden as soon as the soil can be worked. Radish roots do not grow well in hot summer, so plant early spring or in the fall. Plant successive plantings every few weeks to have a steady supply of radishes. Plant 3 - 4 weeks before last frost in spring, and 6 weeks before first frost in fall. Plants are 2" to 6" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires loose fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil uniformly moist and from drying out.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Dig or pull roots when they are mature. If left in ground too long, they will crack and taste bitter.

Best radish I have ever eaten. I allowed one to go to seed and now have harvested the seed pods.. Will see if this seed will be the same as the mother seed.

The German Giant radish is the only round red radish I will bother with. I honestly don't know why any other variety is grown by anyone. It is big, mild, early and reliable.
