Slender, 6-inch, ice-white roots have crisp flesh and fine flavor; mild and fine quality. This pre-1865 heirloom is still popular with home and market growers alike. Easy to grow.

What are the pros? Lots of edible pods

What are the cons? No root growth, bolts quickly

Review:

Zone 6b, a couple blocks from Lake Erie. Raised bed square foot gardens with automatic watering. I've given up trying to grow these. The first year, they grew well and my husband really like them. For the past few years though, the roots don't grow at all and they bolt really fast. I mainly grow radishes because after they flower, the blossoms help attract beneficial bugs like parasitic wasps etc. I'd really rather to just let a few flower after eating most of them than *all* of the radishes bolting immediately. Fortunately my husband loves eating the pods that develop on the stalks. I'll be trying a different variety this year.

Review:

I've grown a good few radish varieties but this one is always a family favorite. Great flavor, though mild on the spice, with crisp, refreshingly juicy flesh. We might pull them a bit on he young side as we tend to get too excited for these, but they root up fast for us. The don't mind being a bit close together and can push through our somewhat dense soil that gives french breakfast trouble at times. I also tend to grow a few as pest deterrents for squash and they work well. Additionally pollinators seem to love the flowers and the pods are fairly tasty too if you're into that. Its a great multipurpose variety, I have absolutely no complaints -I'd definitely recommend these.

What are the pros? beautiful flowers, repels bugs

What are the cons? none

Review:

I LOVE these radishes! However I don't eat them. Here's my story... I don't use any chemicals in my garden and I have been fighting squash bugs since the beginning of time. Last year I read that white icicle radishes repel them and so I tried it. I planted about six around each melon/pumpkin/zucchini (although four is plenty) and when I was cleaning out those boxes at the end of summer, I saw maybe six squash bugs total compared to the usual hundreds. An added bonus is that they flower when they go to seed so my garden was gorgeous. They grow fast so if you're using them for the same purpose, be sure to trim them down to about three feet high every other week to give the other plants around them some sun time.

Review:

Keeping in mind that this is a cool weather fall radish, it is a mild slower grower. Those getting spicy or bolting radishes are probably growing them in the spring when a faster growing spring variety will be more appropriate. I have heavy clay soil, so experimented this past year with straw bales for some crops until finishing my raised beds. I have to say that they were mostly a huge success. These were planted alongside fall veggies and were surprisingly long when I pulled them at last. We had a long fall this year, but these roots were long and mild and tolerated the cold very well. As a matter of fact, it this unseasonably mild year, I left smaller roots in the garden to see what would happen and they are still there in December. Green and growing. Straw bale growing may not be for everyone, but these grew wonderfully in the rotted bales amended with compost and good organic fertilizer. The foliage crowded out neighboring plants as I didn't account for larger size.

What are the pros? they grow quickly and huge

What are the cons? dont let them go too long

Review:

I actually don't like radishes that much, but I grew these mostly to repel pests. They do seem effective for that--haven't had any issues with cucumber beetles and squash bugs like I did last year. They grow SUPER fast into huge white radishes. If you let them go too long the radish root will shrink and they will bolt very high. I let a few go to try to save seed for next year. The flavor is good but pretty spicy. Mine germinated almost 100% so I ended up with way more than I bargained for!
