What are the pros? The spring flavor kept going!
What are the cons? Zero dislikes!
We guarantee it's probably the best radish ever grown! We'd almost given up on radishes, both home & commercially grown, until we found Crimson Giant. For starters, we planted in late March, & fortunately planted the entire package. This radish has a wonderful spring taste, fresh, crisp, tangy. It kept getting larger & larger as the summer went on, but honestly, did NOT become pithy until well into September!! Six months!!
The seeds germinated wonderfully, & grew fast enough that instead of composting the thinnings, we ate them! Their size was like a smallish Cherry Belle at that stage. We started giving them away for fear they would get so large they'd become hollow, woody & pithy but they never did!
Our beds are raised, 3 concrete/cinder blocks high with a soil of old horse manure, dirt & leaves. Garden greens compost in the beds overwinter, then covered w/black plastic & viola! Crimsom Giant beat ALL veggies. You cannot go wrong w/this radish, we promise!!
