This beautiful radish is a treat for the eyes and palate! Watermelon radishes are sweeter than most radish varieties and have a beautiful interior that looks like a ripe watermelon. Radishes prefer to grow in sunny but cool conditions and can be sown either in early fall or late winter. About 60 days from planting to harvest. Occasionally, these radishes have a purple color.
Origin:We were given the parent seed of our watermelon radishes by a friend who volunteers at community garden in Tokyo, Japan while we were on a trip to visit family there.
(Approximately 50 seeds per packet)
Planting Instructions: sow 1 seed every 2" in rows 4" apart as soon as soil can be worked in spring or in late summer. Full sun to part shade. Thin to 1 plant every 4" when sprouts emerge. Growing Tip: Be sure to thin radishes to at least 4" apart or roots will be stringy.
