Raphanus sativus

Smooth and uniform in shape, top-quality Crimson Crunch is an extra-fancy, globe-shaped radish with a brilliant cherry red outside and fine-textured, snow white flesh. Carefully bred to be quick growing and vigorous, Crimson Crunch has an excellent crispy texture in a wide variety of soil conditions. Roots keep their vivid color and mild flavor without getting hot tasting or spongy textured. One of the kitchen garden’s fastest-growing treats, Crimson Crunch adds zest to salads, garnishes and appetizers.

START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In early spring as soon as ground can be worked, sow radish seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Space seeds 1 in. apart in wide rows 6 in. apart. Cover 1/2 in. deep. Keep soil evenly moist and well weeded. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away. Sow in late summer for a fall crop.

GROWING NOTES

Sow this quick growing, cool season crop wherever you intend to plant heat-lovers later. Radishes thrive and have crisp flesh and the best mild flavor given consistent moisture. Sow small amounts a week apart to mature in warm but not hot weather. Thin quick-growing seedlings early to 2 in. apart so roots have room to size up.  Protect radishes with floating row covers if marauding birds or flea beetles that chew holes in the leaves are a problem. 

HARVEST AND USE

Harvest radishes when roots are the size of large marbles. If weather turns unexpectedly hot, pull, cut off tops, and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. Radishes will be spicier in hot weather and milder grown in cooler conditions. Combine sliced radishes, scallions and fresh dill or parsley for a great salad. Make delicious open-faced sandwiches oh whole grain bread spread with sweet butter and topped with sliced radishes.
