28 days. Here is one lovely radish with bright purple skin. Truly one of the most colorful varieties for marketing. 1-1/2-inch globes have sweet, crisp, white flesh which does not get pithy.

What are the pros? grow well in clay soil

What are the cons? some plant are seed only

Review:

sowed 10seed in a little patch some years ago but forgot about them. years later i go back i find a very stange plant growing that is full of seeds. after checking what radish looked like i found out that those were radish seed from those same plant i sowed back in summer year past. i got a box full of seeds from those plant. planted them in rows, about 200. waited to the end of summer (50~ days later) to harvest. about 80% of plant had eatable roots. the rest didnt have any and were only leaves. i let 2 of them seed and kept them for this year. the radish have a very nice color, even very big 3-6inch diameter they are still very crunchy without any woody feeling. the leaves are very rough with spike on them, they are supposed to be comestible but i dont see how. they need alot of water or they get very spicy. i found that slicing them on a plate and letting them air out for 30min remove the hotnest. DO NO FREEZE THEM, i did and they turn to mush. my soil is very hard clay.

What are the pros? goof germination

What are the cons? everything else

Review:

Wow. This really performed poorly here. Although germination was 100%, we didn't eat a single radish. I just pulled up the whole batch, they were bolting. Very few bulbs, mostly thin roots, full of maggots. I mean really full, crawling on them, I have never seen anything like this. I have several other types of radishes that grew normally: good sized bulbs, no maggots. We didn't even have an especially warm spring here (z7). Not suited for this climate I guess.

What are the pros? good taste and texture.

What are the cons? mine got soft when large.

Review:

I'm in zone 8b. I planted these in 4 40 ft rows about 2 weeks apart. If harvested at the normal size they were excellent. My wife wanted me to let them get larger but when I did they lost some taste and crispness. So to satisfy my wife I ordered some larger varieties from Baker Creek for this fall. We'll see how they turn out. I would say they are a good all around radish.

What are the pros? gorgeous color, mildly spicy

What are the cons? none

Review:

These germinate well, and result in gorgeous and tasty large purple radishes. My neighbors love receiving extras. I did note that several never developed into full radishes, just a root, before bolting, but that is probably due to sporadic heat waves. I will definitely be growing these again.

Review:

I love these! I love the purple color and they don't get hot. They can get big, but don't get pithy at all.
