WINTER RADISH

(6 varieties to choose from)

 

  Plant in late summer to have mature about 2 weeks after the first frost.  Winter types do not do well in Spring plantings and need to be sown no earlier than July 15.  They need to be grown when the day length is shrinking.  If planted too early, they will not bulb up.  Approximately 450 seeds/pkt.

 

China White- 55 days- Same as China Rose, but white in color.  Pkt. $1.50

 

China Rose- 55 days-  Fall plant around August 1.  Roots get 8 inches long and 1 to 2 inches across.  Pink skin with white flesh.  Our poultry and sheep love this Autumn treat but they are good for human consumption. Pkt. $1.50 

 

Japanese Minowase- 60 days- Daikon type from Japan.  Can get very large.  White skin, white flesh.  Pkt. $2.00

 

Long Black Spanish- 65 days-  Long black skinned winter keeper.  Old history and very rare.  Roots are long and thick with excellent keeping ability.  Pkt. $2.00

Round Black Spanish-  55 days- A Winter type that we plant the first week of August here.  Roots must be pulled and placed into storage before the ground freezes. Will keep solid as a baseball until April.  Vegetables of this type were essential and popular 100 years ago.  Today’s instant gratification society and modern shipping methods have replaced this wonderful type of radish.  Caution:  Do not plant this one early in the Spring.  They will not ball up.  Pkt. $1.50

Watermelon - 60 days - White skin, pink red flesh.  While it can be planted in the Spring, it does best for us when planted in mid to late Summer for Fall harvest.  Pkt. $2.00

Winter Radish Mix - A mix of the above Pkt. $1.75
