RADISH FRENCH BREAKFAST

Description
French Breakfast Radish Seeds (Summer Type) 2095 Heirloom Vegetable. An older variety grown since at least the late 1870’s. Produces rich scarlet red roots with white tips that are crisp, mild and surprisingly sweet. A real favourite that has stood the test of time! Although frost hardy, roots will not tolerate freezing. Irrigation is essential for best flavour and root consistency.

How to Grow
90-100 seed/gram. Sow early varieties in a sunny site as soon as the ground is workable in the spring. Winter radishes are generally sown in mid-summer. Sow seed every two weeks 12 mm (1/2″) deep and about 2.5 cm (1″) apart in rows about 30 cm (12″) apart. Keep soil evenly moist during germination and growth. Harvest in 3-4 weeks when the roots have reached the size of a large marble. One packet sows approximately 6 m (20’) of row.
