A beautiful, zesty, winter heirloom radish with black skin and crisp white flesh. Large 2–4" round roots with crisp, hot, white flesh. Black radishes were first cultivated in the Eastern Mediterranean. They were introduced to the rest of Europe during the Middle Ages and were one of the primary root vegetables grown for their nutritional content, increasing their popularity in Europe through the 19th century. 2.5g ~ 250 seeds.

Plant spring radish seeds directly in the garden starting 4-6 weeks before average last spring frost. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-65 degrees. Since they mature so quickly, spring radishes are often planted with carrots and parsnips, between slowly growing cole crops, or between small tomato and pepper plants. Plant every 2-3 weeks for a continued harvest until about 4 weeks after average last frost. Can be sown again in early fall. Plant winter radish varieties 6-8 weeks before average first frost.
