China Rose Radish Seeds (Winter Type) 2125 Heirloom Vegetable. A good keeping variety with dark pink to reddish skinned roots averaging 15-20 cm (6-8″) in length and 5-6.5 cm (2-2.5″) in diameter. The flesh is white, crisp, juicy and pungent. Although frost hardy, winter radish roots will not survive winters harsher than Zone 8. Grown since at least the late 1880’s.
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.
