Looking for something new and exciting to add to your garden? Try watermelon radish! This winter radish heirloom originated in China and is known for its large, white root with green shoulders. The flesh is red to pink and very sweet and crisp. You'll love the large green tops, which make it easy to pick these radishes. They work great in salads and as garnishes! NOTE: For summer to fall sowing only; will bolt to seed from spring sowing. Also know as 'Red Meat' radish.  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.
