Detailed Product Info

These long, cylindrical radishes sort of resemble carrots, but that's where the similarities end. Best when planted under slightly cooler conditions (think late-summer), the China Rose Winter radish is great for long-term cold-weather storage. Vibrant, red skin gives way to white, firm flesh. Very crisp, the China Rose Winter is great eaten raw--a great fresh addition to cold-weather palates.

Growing Instructions

Direct sow China Rose in late summer in rows spaced 10" apart. Thin small radish seedlings to 4-6" apart for large roots. Keep watered, especially during hot weeks. Harvest 3-6" radishes after the first frost for a sweet crop. Store in the refrigerator or in a root cellar for months. (Tops are enjoyable in a saute or braising mix.)
