Click below to listen to my Garden Bite radio show: Warmed soil and planting
The soil temperature has been warming up quickly with the recent above average temperatures. Folks are very anxious to get planting. Cool season crops are a go right now. You can sow seeds of peas, beets, greens and radishes…
Garden radishes offer far more flavor and many varieties…
For instance, black radishes have a horseradish (hot) flavor if eaten fresh but when cooked mellows to a nutty sweetness. ps these are not small…
Baker Creek Heirloom seeds – Rareseeds – they carry a wide selection of unusual radishes
Daikons are long white Japanese radishes that are wonderful in stir fry.
Another source for rare radishes High Mowing organic seeds
Burpee is another source for rarer radish seeds. The Watermelon radish aka red meat radish come from China and is sweeter than most radishes.
And as for the Lime Radish I mentioned…. tough one to find seeds for! In fact, all I could fine were places to buy the radishes as produce. Specialty Produce
Radishes are very easy to grow and like cool weather. Plant in early Spring and again in late Summer.
