White Icicle Radish. Heirloom vegetable. A handsome long radish with glistening, pure white roots up to 12.5cm (5in) long and nearly 2.5cm (1in) in diameter. Flesh is crisp and sweet with a mild flavour that warms the tongue but tends to be less pungent than round varieties. This is an attractive variety for both commercial growers and home gardeners. Grown from at least 1865.
Approx. 500 seeds
Outdoors, sow thinly, May-August, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Keep moist, as dry conditions may cause roots to toughen. Thin plants to 15cm (6") apart. Cloche protection in autumn can extend the harvest season. Harvest: August-November. Harvest alternate roots, allowing others to mature fully, up to 35cm (14") long.
