Radish - Cherry Belle Radish, Certified Organic

Avg seeds/pkt 280

Want crisp, delicious radishes? Plant Cherry Belles while the soil is cool, harvest while they’re no bigger than an inch across, and eat right away. Radish roots and leaves are a low-calorie source of antioxidants and vitamin C. In the garden, radish leaves attract pollinators and will deter several insect pests.

Sow outdoors in moist, fertile soil and full sun, starting 5 weeks before your last frost, or when soil temperature is near 45°F. Clear stones from the top 3 inches of soil and add compost and hardwood ash as needed. Avoid adding nitrogen. Radishes are best eaten fresh, so plant a couple of square feet or short rows each week until the soil warms to 65°F, sowing seeds 1/2 inch deep and 1 to 2 inches apart.

Plants emerge in 4 to 12 days. When tops are 1 inch high thin plants 2 to 4 inches apart in all directions or in rows that are 8 inches apart. Mulch to keep soil cool. In the absence of rain, give radishes an inch of water a week.

Harvest frequently, starting at 22 days after germination, and before 30 days when flavor and texture may start to decline.

For a fall crop, start sowing seeds 8 weeks before your first frost, when soil temperatures drop to 60°F.
