Description
The delicate flavour of French Breakfast Radishes is renowned, and this one is no exception. Bunching Radish 'French Breakfast 4 - Francis' improves upon popular varieties 'Mirabeau' and 'Flamboyant'. Its top quality, uniform roots are cylindrical with tender, crisp white flesh. This quick maturing radish tolerates summer heat well, and matures from 21 days. Perfect for successional sowings from March right through to September. 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.

Sowing
Direct sow radish seeds from March to September under glass at a temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F), or from April to August outdoors. Grow radish in a well prepared fertile, moist, free draining seedbed in full sun or semi shade. Sow 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 20mm (3/4in) apart. Regular sowings made at 4 week intervals will ensure a steady supply of radishes throughout the season. Radish plants are quick growing and can be used for intercropping between other slower growing vegetables such as parsnips. Where space is limited, growing radish in patio containers will also produce a worthwhile crop.
More Info
When growing 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 radishes 3 to 4 weeks after sowing when roots reach a reasonable size. Delayed harvesting may result in hot, pithy roots.
