What are the pros? Hardy, Moderate Growth, Spicy

What are the cons? Low Growing, Dense Foilage

Review:

Alright, I sowed this variety into our test garden in the first week of March 2017. I am very cautious about growing radishes in our climate as we get wild diurnal Spring temperatures and reach the upper 70s by June. So, I figured, why not try earlier? These radishes are growing at a moderate clip with many days only reaching the 40s and overnights have bottomed out in the 10s. I haven't lost a single plant to the snow that fell on them nor the very low temperatures. I decided to thin a bit late with 2-3 sets of true leaves showing for greens. They're spicy like black pepper corns. The small roots that already have started to develop the barrel shape are right between Horseradish and real Wasabi in heat. The downside is that they are close to the ground and dense leaves when harvesting. I was surprised that they didn't get sweeter with the cool temperatures but that's just fine with me. This is a delightful variety that I am going to sow every year and maybe even earlier.

Review:

These little beauties are so easy to grow. I just threw them down at the beginning of August and they're already (Sept. 19) an edible size with pretty, inch-wide green tops poking up above the soil. They're very spicy, and smell and taste like horseradish or wasabi, probably because of my climate (August is typically the hottest, driest month here). This is a great performer and I'll be planting a lot more in the early spring to see how they do during that time of year here (and hopefully collect some more seeds in summer), as well as give them a shot in my hydroponic garden this winter. May also try them out in the cold frame. Have not yet tasted the greens, but they look and smell delicious, so I'll probably fry them up tonight.

Review:

I planted these with other fall radishes to see how I liked them. I thinned them and we ate the thinnings in salads. They grew to quite large, some of them and rarely pithy. A big hit. all in all; we eat them raw or cooked, they stored in the root cellar all winter so we were still eating them in May, plus they are good in fermented vegetables.
