This edible root crop can vary a great deal in size and colour; all depending on the variety of Radish seed that is used. Radish seeds need to be sown in succession between March and September. They need to be liberally sown into finely raked soil, in rows about 25cm apart. The seeds should germinate within 4 to 7 days and reach maturity within 4 to 6 weeks.
This quick appearing crop is normally a rich red, and adds a beautiful colour to any salad bowl.
