Description
A traditional winter hardy variety producing long, tapering roots with attractive rosy pink skins and crisp, pure white flesh. Chinese Radish 'China Rose' has a distinctive, slightly pungent taste that adds flavour to winter salads. The leaves can also be added to salads and stir fries. Height and spread: 15cm (6").

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.

Sowing
Direct sow winter radish seeds from April to July outdoors. Grow winter radish in a well prepared fertile, moist, free draining seedbed in full sun or semi shade. Sow winter radish seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2") in drills 15cm (6") apart. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 2.5cm (1") apart. Where space is limited, growing winter radish in patio containers will also produce a worthwhile crop.
More Info
When growing winter 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. Protect winter crops with cloches. Winter radishes can stay in situ until Christmas or can be lifted and stored when they are about 10cm (4") long.
