Very large radish developed in Germany. Attractive scarlet-red skin, crisp white, slightly pungent flesh. These radishes grow from marble to baseball size, without getting woody or spongy.
Radish – German Giant – Raphanus sativus
Soil & Water: Radishes prefer well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter. They have low nutrient requirements; especially avoid excess nitrogen to promote good root development. Preferred soil pH is 6.0-7.0.
Planting & Growing: Cool weather is needed for best development. Sow seed directly wherever there is extra space in the garden. Radishes make good, living row markers for slower germinating crops like carrots.
Harvesting & Storage: A mid to late season variety. Harvest whenever large enough to use. Store in cool, moist conditions.
