French Breakfast Organic Radish Seed

Raphanus sativus

 

French Breakfast radishes are a small to medium-sized varietal, averaging 5 to 10 centimeters in length, and have an elongated, oblong to cylindrical appearance with a single taproot. The radish’s skin is thin, taut, and smooth, showcasing a two-toned nature of fuchsia-red hues with white tips.

 

Underneath the surface, the flesh is white, dense, succulent, and crisp with a crunchy, snap-like consistency.

French Breakfast radishes have a mild, earthy, and peppery flavor. When the roots are cooked, they develop a subtly sweet, nutty, and mellow taste. In addition to the roots, the leafy green tops are edible and have a crisp texture with a vegetal, green, and slightly peppery flavor.

CULTURAL INFO

 

Radishes (Raphanus sativus) are hardy annuals in the Brassicaiceae family, which includes broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, kohlrabi, turnips, mustards, watercress and horseradish. Most varieties are best harvested young, but some are specifically selected as winter storage radishes.

 

Soil Nutrients and Requirements

Remove stones from loose, well drained soil with pH 5.8-6.8. Go easy on nitrogen, as excessive amounts can lead to big tops and little roots.

 

When to Sow

Radishes can be direct seeded as soon as soil can be worked and are best adapted to the cooler temperatures and shorter day-length of spring and fall. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 65-85°F. Seedlings emerge within a few days. Plant every 10 days for a continual supply. Winter radishes should be planted to mature around fall frost date.

 

How to harvest:

Harvest radishes on time as they do not hold well in the field, especially in warm weather when roots tend to become pithy and pungent.

 

Storage

Topped radishes will keep good quality for 3-4 weeks if store at near freezing temperatures with high humidity in semi-permeable containers.
