This variety can grow up to 4 times a normal sized radish! Crimson is notwithstanding its immense size and its flesh does not get hollow or pithy, it remains sparkling white, solid, crisp and juicy.


Culinary Properties:
The radish is commonly served as a grated condiment, and used in soups, stews and pickles. The greens can also be pickled, as well as stir-fried, mixed into rice or turned into a condiment.


Nutritional Value:
Red radishes are packed with Vitamins E, A, C, B6, and K. Plus it's high on antioxidants, fiber, zinc, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, copper, calcium, iron and manganese. And each of these is known to keep our body in good working condition.


Growing Instructions:
Direct sow the first crop of radishes in rich soil a few weeks before the last expected frost of spring. Plant the seeds in deeply worked soil about 1/2" deep and 1" apart. Later thin the seedlings to 2-3" apart or more if you want larger radishes. Thinned seedlings can be transplanted elsewhere. For a continuous harvest, plant a new crop every 2 weeks. Since most radishes do not tolerate heat well, it is best to avoid planting them in the midsummer heat. For a fall crop and winter storage, plant about 2 months before the first expected fall frost. Radishes do well with consistent moisture and organic matter such as compost. Proper moisture is key. Don't let the soil dry out, but don't overwater either as this can cause splitting.
