Radish 'Mars' F1 Hybrid - RHS endorsed vegetable seeds

Raphanus sativus

This RHS AGM radish has really impressed us in both field trials and taste tests. If you like an ornamental quality to the veg patch, or grow for the show bench, you'll appreciate the neat leafy tops and uniform bright red roots of Radish Mars F1. More importantly you'll love this mild tasting radish for its crisp, juicy texture and visual appeal on the plate. Mars F1 offers a slightly thicker damage-free skin, strong enough to withstand harvesting, washing and preparation without detracting from taste or texture.

Indeed Mars F1 is top for texture! Other radishes soon turn pithy but not Radish Mars F1, meaning you can leaves roots in the ground twice as long as other varieties, giving you the longest harvesting window possible. This vigorous radish is easy to grow outdoors and can be sown under glass or on windowsills for early crops. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 10cm (4").

These vegetable seeds are endorsed by the RHS.
