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.

How to Grow

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.
