Mooli Radish 'Neptune' F1 Hybrid
Raphanus sativusIncreasingly popular for their pure white roots with a crisp, mild flavour that won't go pithy. The pure white, crisp fleshed, mild flavoured roots of Mooli Radish 'Neptune', grow up to 25cm (10") long. Fully winter hardy, this mooli radish is best grown for autumn and winter production. Roots remain in perfect condition over a long period, and they can be lifted and stored the same as other root crops. This tasty variety also shows excellent resistance to bolting. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").
Companion planting: Try growing radishes with mint to deter flea beetles, which chew irregular holes in the leaves.
