Easter Egg Radish
Certified Organic Seed
Crunchy, colorful egg-sized roots.
Easter egg radishes grow quickly and soundly into slightly larger-than-average roots that take on pastel hues: pinks, purples, and whites. Their texture is crisp-juicy and they hold well without getting "empty spots" within. Does especially well in the fall, when the roots can get positively enormous—and still taste great!

Direct sow in early May in rows spaced 10" apart. Thin small radish seedlings to 2-4" apart, depending on the variety. Keep watered, especially as the season warms up. Harvest radishes as soon as they are round, there is a small window to harvest them before they split. Store radishes without the top to keep roots firm. (Tops are enjoyable in a saute or braising mix.) Radishes are fast growing, so plant in successions to have a steady crop.
