Radishes of All Sizes, Shapes and Colors

Not just peppery, round and red; you’ll find mild to pungent flavored radishes in a variety of colors and shapes. And some are ready to harvest in just 25 days.

Salad radishes are quick maturing and easy to grow. Slice into the slightly sweet watermelon radish to find the unique color that inspired its name. French breakfast radish is red, elongated, and ready to harvest in 25 to 30 days.  Or change things up with Helios, a small, plump, yellow radish with a sweet flavor.

Add pungent hot flavor to your meals with Spanish black radishes. They typically have black skins, white centers, and come in a variety of shapes.

Plant Asian radishes midsummer into early fall. These typically have a long white cylindrical root and are an important ingredient in Asian cuisine and grown for sprouts and microgreens.

A bit more information: Asian radishes’ deep roots and adaptability to a wide range of soil make them a useful winter-killed cover crop.  The large taproots break through the top 8 or more inches of soil, die in winter and quickly decompose in spring to improve the soil.
