Mooli Radish 'Neptune' F1 Hybrid

Raphanus sativus

Hardy Annual

Increasingly 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").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.


Companion planting: Try growing radishes with mint to deter flea beetles, which chew irregular holes in the leaves.

Direct sow mooli radish seeds outdoors from late June to July. Earlier sowings risk a higher chance of bolting. Grow mooli radish in a well prepared fertile, moist, free draining seedbed in full sun or semi shade. Sow oriental radish seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (½in) in drills 30cm 12") apart. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 10cm (4") apart. Where space is limited, growing mooli radish in patio containers will also produce a worthwhile crop.
When growing mooli radishes, prevent them running to seed by keeping plants cool and well watered, particularly during hot, dry periods. Excessive watering should also be avoided as this will encourage radish leaf growth instead of root development. Harvest mooli radishes around 8 weeks after sowing when roots reach a 10cm (4") in length. Protect winter crops with cloches.
