This French heirloom can grow 10 inches long and has deep violet-purple skin and pungent white flesh that is great for cooking, pickling or grated raw in salads. It is a fall/winter radish that is generally planted in summer or fall and harvested in early winter. Sometimes these can be spring sown in northern areas with great results. Introduced prior to 1885.

Review:

They took care of themselves, kept them in the ground until recently. They have a robustly earthy flavor so I think they're better cooked. Not really for someone who isn't into radishes. Made some turnip cakes which the radishes rendered nice and savory.

What are the pros? grows great late summer

What are the cons? bolts in spring planting

Review:

This is a great radish when planted mid July to mid August. early august is best. The flavor can be hot if its dry and warm, or can be very mild with watering. Love this radish and the color is great. Does not matter how big or small you pick it, does not get woody. try it in the fall.

Review:

We planted only french heirloom varieties this year and I really wanted to like these radishes but they were very strong raw and extremely bitter when cooked. It is no shock that they are not very popular today. Also, the root was small compared to the massive growth of spiny foliage.

Review:

I live in SW Wisconsin and I planted these about mid-May. They were quick to bolt, were very leafy and about the end of June (with proper thinning) I had radishes that were 5-6" long and a pretty purple outside and creamy white on the inside. No problems with this one! These radishes are certainly not for the faint-hearted: they are very spicy! If you like really spicy radishes, these are the ones for you!
