Radish 'Rougette'

Raphanus sativus

Hardy Annual

An RHS AGM variety producing globe shaped roots with ruby red skins and crisp, succulent flesh. Radish 'Rougette' has short tops making it well suited to growing in frames or under cloches for the earliest radishes of the season. Make successional sowings throughout the spring and summer months for a longer cropping period. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 10cm (4").

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.

Radishes grow well in most soils, but prefer rich, moist free draining soils. Temperature 15-20C. Germination 4-10 days. Sow seeds at regular intervals from early spring to early summer into well cultivated soil. Sow seeds very thinly 1cm (0.5in) deep in drills 15cm (6in) apart.For sowing later in the summer choose a moist cool spot in slight shade to prevent running to seed. To extend the season they can be sown in autumn again from mid winter onwards through to spring in a greenhouse, coldframe or cloches. Sow very thinly and keep moist and ventilate freely at all times.

Thin out seedlings to 3-5cm (1 to 2in) apart.

Water during dry spells. Harvest as soon as the roots reach reasonable size, if left too long they will become hot and woody.
