57 days. Raphanus caudatus. Open Pollinated. Plant produces heavy yields of 3 to 6" green pods that have a radish taste. They are very delicious, crisp, and mildly pungent. They had a sharp but pleasant radish taste, along with a very nice crunchy texture. After trying this amazing edible podded radish, you won't get enough of them. It adds a delicious flavor to any dish. Perfect for mixed vegetable platters, salads, and lightly cooked in stir fries. Great for pickling too. Best when harvested when pods are young. Requires staking or trellis as it will grow to 5 ft. Excellent choice for home gardens. A heirloom variety from Thailand dating back to the 1860s.

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.
