Radish 'Round Red' (Organic)

An ancient vegetable with a diverse history, it is commonly acknowledged that it was the work of 16th-century Dutch and Italian gardeners that we are to thank for the vibrant red button radishes we use to adorn our salads to this day. These horticulturists deliberately chose and cultivated radishes with petite, spherical roots, shaping the familiar and versatile vegetable we grow and enjoy enjoy in our 21st Century gardens and cuisine.

How to grow

Radishes are closely related to cabbages, so their requirements are much the same. It is essential to sow radishes thinly, about one seed every 5cm, any closer and they may fail to develop an adequate root for harvesting. The young leaves can be used in salads. Grow radishes with plenty of water and nutrients, as hot, dry weather causes hot, pithy roots. Sow with carrots to maximise space in your garden as radishes will be harvested before your carrots develop their true form. Members of the Brassica family, protect from cabbage moth and caterpillars. Sow new seed every 3-4 weeks to maintain a continual harvest.
