What are the pros? Healthy, Great germ. rate.
What are the cons? Taller than I expected
These seeds are GREAT! They have a very high germination rate, and the plants grow strong. I cultivated deep and below the raised garden bed I direct sowed the seeds starting in mid Feb here in Zone 9b. I planted seeds ~ 1" deep and thinned to 6" apart. Next time I will sow them directly in cultivated soil in a long row, not in the 4x4 raised bed. I really didn't realize how much top growth there is. They are shading my spinach. BUT . . . they are so healthy and such strong plants. Once they take off, they really grow up fast. The radishes are slightly hot (like we like them), and we pick them before they are huge. Today, I'm experimenting with cooking the top leaves, which are a daily staple in parts of China and Japan. Wouldn't that just be a great side benefit? Tons of leaves, (a little hairy), but nothing a good barley or vegetable soup couldn't handle. Excellent seeds. Thank you rareseeds.com / Baker Creek.
