What are the pros? hold in ground a long time

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


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
