Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 10cm (4").

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

Sowing Months Harvest Months

The tender young leaves can be used as an additive to soups and radish seed can also be used as sprouting seeds for salads and stir-fries.

Radishes require rich, moisture retentive soils containing plenty of well-rotted manure or compost for the quick production of tender, crisp roots. Seeds can be sown in succession outdoors from March to September; earlier sowings from February can be made under protection. In warmer months maturity can be as quick as 5 weeks. Sowings can be broadcast or in rows, 13mm deep.

Ideal as an intercrop between other long standing crops. Because of their rapid germination radishes are often used as a marker for slower germinating crops such as parsley. Frequent pulling of mature roots is vital because very quickly they can become soft and pithy with poor flavour.
