Sakurajima Mammoth- 75 days- I remember as a young gardener in the late 1960's seeing this in Gurneys and always wondered if it would get that big. The catalog claimed 25 pounds. In Salmon we had root maggots so bad growing radishes was challenge. When I finally tried in in the early 1980's in Lenore it did get impressive even with the lack of effort I put into it. I couldn't find seed for years and have found a source so we will see what size we can get here. (100-200 seeds )Pkt. $3.00
Round Black Spanish
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
