Cultivation advice Organic Sprouting Radish China Rose

Seeds are excellent for sprouting. Can be planted in the spring for summer eating or planted in the fall for storage. The young leaves can also be used in salads or for stir-frying.  Keeps well.  55 days from germination.

Sow sparingly as these are larger than standard Radishes, often and little from the last frost until winter for a continuous crop all summer.

These will harvest well into winter from a late autumn sowing.
