Detailed Product Info

William Woys Weaver found this rare18th-century summer radish in Slovakia, where it has been grown by villagers for hundreds of years. Old German garden books refer to it simply as yellow carrot shaped and indeed that is exactly how it looks. 6- to 7-inch roots with pale yellow skin. The smallest and most tender one are also the darkest yellow. These tiny ones make good beer radishes, while the large ones can be cooked like turnips. This is a perfect radish for hot summer weather; slow to bolt and ideal as a cover crop since it breaks up heavy soils.
