55 days. Raphanus sativus. Open Pollinated. The plant produces excellent yields of 6 to 8” long rose-colored radishes. It has rose-colored skin and white flesh. Great for growing as sprouts too. Very easy to grow. Also known as Kaiware Radish. For best results, plant winter storage radish in mid to late August. Excellent choice for home gardens. An heirloom variety that was brought over from China by the Jesuit missionaries in the 1850s.

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.
