Unique deep purple round roots. Firm white flesh, sweet and mild all season, hardy and adaptable, never pithy. Seed can be sown at any time beginning in early spring, but are best grown in spring and fall to avoid hot, dry temperatures. Seed depth is 0.25-0.5”, 1” apart, in rows 4-8” apart. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 80ºF. Seedlings are apparent within a few days and should be thinned, and kept well weeded. Radishes can be harvested at any time, but if left too long will typically become tough.
