SO EASY

EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? so easy and versatile

What are the cons? get tough fast

Review:

These are GREAT. I've had a hard time growing regular radishes because of soil problems. I think these are so much better. No scrubbing dirt off; just rinse and eat. Many times I don't even need to chop them up. I throw them on salads and into stir fries. My favorite use is to pickle them. They are SO GOOD pickled in bloody marys. They also make a great addition to a crudite tray. They are a perfect shape for dipping. The plants themselves attract a lot of pollinators (great for your plants, annoying for the gardener). I aso grew them in partial shade this year with my greens. They did great. I have also grown them in full sun which they also tolerated well. Very prolific but the pods go tough quickly if not picked at their prime.

What are the pros? Prolific and great flavor

What are the cons? They attract cabbage moths

Review:

Very easy to grow and very prolific. Plants benefit from some kind of support. Great for snacking and pickling. Do NOT plant anywhere near brassicas. They attract huge numbers of cabbage moths like magnets.

What are the pros? prolific, good bee plant

What are the cons? none

Review:

this is a great radish it grows fast and tastes great it seems to like similar conditions to peas or beans and needs support(although i had 2 plants that did not need support and which produced the most i'm glad i saved the seeds)it is also a supreme bee and pollinator plant(there were always honey bees,solitary bees,bumble bees and butterflies on it all day)so much so that i am considering a mass planting for bee forage.i think it is possible to have 2 or 3 crops a year on the same ground which opens up possibilities for green manure,catch crops or animal fodder also the seeds seem like they might have some use as chicken food but they are pretty time consuming to harvest.

What are the pros? great flavor, prolific

What are the cons? maybe too prolific

Review:

I found this radish when searching for a radish that would grow well in hot summer weather. The first year I planted it I planted a whole row .. mistake! I was amazed at the growth of these plants. This year I planted a fewer number of plants and used tomato cages to keep them a bit more upright. Still very prolific and I just cut them back to see if they continue to produce more. So far, our favorite way to enjoy them is to snack on them when they are small. Will try to pickle some of the slightly larger ones this year and am searching for recipes for cooked radishes to try them that way. For us, once they reach a serious "pod" size, they are not as flavorful raw so want to try them some other way.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, VERY productive

What are the cons? Almost

Review:

I grew these for the first time this year mostly out of curiosity. WOW!! First, I LOVE the taste. They're good for eating by themselves, and mixed in salads. I've given some away, and a friend said, "Those are great! Everyone is asking, 'Where did he get the seeds for these?'" Second, VERY productive! I've picked WAY more than we can possibly eat in meals and snacks. I'm pickling a lot now, and that will probably be our salvation. My wife told me, "Maybe you shouldn't have planted so many." I told her, "Well, I know that NOW!" I had no idea how prolific they are. I'm planting them again, for sure.
