What's so great about our radishes?

You can fit 16 radishes in a single 30x30 cm square patch. 
And if you’re going to grow radishes, why not choose the biggest and tastiest ones you can get your hands on? 
This giant variety stays firm and crisp: they won’t get spongy. And they taste great: fresh and not too sharp.

Sowing and growing Radishes

Radish seeds germinate fast. Seedlings pop up after only 4 days or so.

To sow, plant a few seeds in each hole. When the seedlings come up, thin them out carefully so the remaining radish plants have enough room to grow. 
Thinning out means cutting away extra seedlings at the soil line. If you uproot them like weeds, you'll disturb the remaining radishes. Same goes for transplanting: just don’t do it 😉

Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are included in the Planty Gardening app.  

How do yo use it?

Most people eat only the radishes themselves. Raw through salads or sliced on bread.

But you can also stew or bake radishes briefly or roast them in the oven. Then they become juicier and a little softer in flavor.

The leaves are also edible. Use the young leaves raw in salads and the slightly older leaves in stews, stir-fries or pasta.
