28 days. Here is one lovely radish, with its bright purple skin that makes this one of the most colorful varieties for marketing. 1½” globes have sweet, crisp, white flesh which does not get pithy.

What are the pros? hold in ground a long time

What are the cons? I can't think of any.

Review:

These radishes are sweeter than most, not as mild as hailstone, but comparable to early scarlet globe or sparkler in taste. Keep them out of high nitrogen or too rich soils or they will not bulb especially at temps above 75 degrees! I grow these in poor clay soil areas with a high mineral content, the soil being a ph of about 8 or even higher. They do wonderfully all summer long here if they get enough water even in the heat as long as they aren't where I have put down chicken litter or green grass mulch nearby. The radishes are plump and crisp, never seem to get woody or pithy long after the other varieties have gone past their prime. These are my personal favorites after the earlier cherry belle and the super mild hailstone radishes. I get a decent stand of them in the greenhouse when I plant them in temperatures of 35 degrees to mature in temps of 70 to 80 about 40 days later. After that the richer soils combined with the heat and humidity causes them to go "all greens". 1

What are the pros? grow well in clay soil

What are the cons? some plant are seed only

Review:

sowed 10seed in a little patch some years ago but forgot about them. years later i go back i find a very stange plant growing that is full of seeds. after checking what radish looked like i found out that those were radish seed from those same plant i sowed back in summer year past. i got a box full of seeds from those plant. planted them in rows, about 200. waited to the end of summer (50~ days later) to harvest. about 80% of plant had eatable roots. the rest didnt have any and were only leaves. i let 2 of them seed and kept them for this year. the radish have a very nice color, even very big 3-6inch diameter they are still very crunchy without any woody feeling. the leaves are very rough with spike on them, they are supposed to be comestible but i dont see how. they need alot of water or they get very spicy. i found that slicing them on a plate and letting them air out for 30min remove the hotnest. DO NO FREEZE THEM, i did and they turn to mush. my soil is very hard clay.

What are the pros? goof germination

What are the cons? everything else

Review:

Wow. This really performed poorly here. Although germination was 100%, we didn't eat a single radish. I just pulled up the whole batch, they were bolting. Very few bulbs, mostly thin roots, full of maggots. I mean really full, crawling on them, I have never seen anything like this. I have several other types of radishes that grew normally: good sized bulbs, no maggots. We didn't even have an especially warm spring here (z7). Not suited for this climate I guess.

What are the pros? good taste and texture.

What are the cons? mine got soft when large.

Review:

I'm in zone 8b. I planted these in 4 40 ft rows about 2 weeks apart. If harvested at the normal size they were excellent. My wife wanted me to let them get larger but when I did they lost some taste and crispness. So to satisfy my wife I ordered some larger varieties from Baker Creek for this fall. We'll see how they turn out. I would say they are a good all around radish.

What are the pros? gorgeous color, mildly spicy

What are the cons? none

Review:

These germinate well, and result in gorgeous and tasty large purple radishes. My neighbors love receiving extras. I did note that several never developed into full radishes, just a root, before bolting, but that is probably due to sporadic heat waves. I will definitely be growing these again.
