  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture retentive soil

    High quality, bright red roots with excellent flavour, a crisp texture and good resistance to cracking in poor growing conditions. The strong tops make harvesting extra easy.
    Winner of an Royal Horticultural Society, Award of Garden Merit for reliability and good performance.
    Part of the seed range produced by Mr Fothergill’s Seeds in partnership with the RHS.

  • Growing Instructions:Choose a sunny, sheltered spot with free-draining soil and sow sparingly direct where they are to grow, in shallow drills. Thinning is not necessary: taking care not to disturb other roots, pull out the largest as they reach the size of a marble, when they're at their tenderest. The rest will grow to fill the space they leave. Don't sow too many radishes at once, or you'll have a glut: instead, sow half a row every two or three weeks to have just the right amount to harvest all season long.

  • Sow: February-September

  • Harvest: April-October

  • Approximate quantity: 500 seeds.
