These radishes grew well and grew large! Not to mention the somewhat spicy flavor that paired really well with beer. Excellent.

Love these radishes. They grow very large but are a great traditional radish out of Munich. Sliced thin and salted, they go well with beer.

Review:

I'm not a fan of eating radishes, so I got these to prepare the bed for my squashes. The roots and tops are huge. I hadn't planted for years in the back part of the garden where I put these, and they have no issues growing long and wide. (I did till and add alfalfa meal/compost before planting.) I plucked out two this morning and the measurements include the stringy roots. One is 9" long with a 9" circumference. The other is a foot long with a 7" circumference. Also, living next to a corn field, I always have issues with abundant cucumber beetles and squash bugs destroying my squash. Radishes are a known trap crop for said bugs. Given how big these plants get, there is a lot of leaf to keep them away from my squashes (so far). I also found a dead japanese beetle on a leaf, but I don't know if the radish killed it or it just happened to die there.

Review:

These get physically quite huge, with long, enormous leaves that tend to splay against the ground and dominate the area in which they are grown. I definitely recommend you keep them to themselves or plant them next to something that is big enough to defend itself, which my beets certainly weren't. The roots get huge as well, the whole mature plant more like a really large turnip than any kind of radish. Very good spicy flavor though, with a fine-grained crunchy texture. Try them sliced thin on sandwiches.

Review:

Bought a pack of the Munchener Bier Radish after my mother had talked about a White Radish her Grandfather use to grow in Germany. We weren't really sure if this was the one, but after we pulled a couple and she tasted them, it was like she was back at her grandparents farm. This is an awesome flavored radish, has a kick to it, but it's been great over salad, in some cooked dishes and just raw. And the description states they grow to 4", the ones I pulled have been 6-8 inches long. A must try
