What are the pros? Did well in warm climate
What are the cons? None
Root vegetables do better planted in the winter here, but I planted some of these out in March and actually got a pretty good crop. They didn't have time to reach their size potential but were big enough to slice and put in salads for weeks. Compared to other varieties I planted at the same time these did the best and were the fastest growing and largest.

What are the pros? Spicy
What are the cons? Kinda tricky to grow
I'll admit I've never grown radishes and we chose these and they were tricky to grow, but the few that we got were nice and hot and really tasty. Will try again this fall.

What are the pros? Tasty Greens
What are the cons? none
China Rose has consistently out performed my other radishes. The germination rate has been 100%. Likes cool weather. Good spring and late fall crop. Roots are spicy and delicious!!! The Greens from thinning are spectacular as well!

What are the pros? Taste, hardiness, size
I've grown these for a few years now and they are fantastic. I usually plant these in late fall and harvest as I want them. They will get enormous if you let them go. It is mid December and mine are still growing great.

I have space in a community garden here in Ventura, CA - zone 9a. I planted these in 15-18" tall 4x8' raised beds that are half sunk into the ground. I just did a single row across the 4' line of these radishes. I thinned them to about maybe 8-10 radishes. I'm sorry I didn't keep track of how long they were in the ground for, but I completely forgot I had planted them! They were SO HUGE in the ground that I mistook them for cylindrical beets I had also purchased from Baker Creek. Let me tell you, in the right conditions these things get pretty monstrous. I pulled my first one out of the ground and my boyfriend exclaimed "oh my god! I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!" it was the size of my head! I took a picture holding it up standing next to it, it was minimum 7-8 inches long AND. I STILL thought it was a beet at that point! I washed it off and took a huge bite out of the side and my eyes started to water in the most comic way! This radish has me all shook up, I love it. I'm planting so many more and eat them almost everyday in the proper French fashion.I slice them ultra-thin, toast up some sourdough bread, butter it lightly, top the bread with the thin slices and sprinkle a little bit of sea salt on top. It's truly the most simple and amazing way to eat a radish, and these are so perfect for that.
