Misato Rose Winter Radish - Organic


Misato Rose Winter Radish - Organic

(60 days) Open-pollinated. Also known as Chinese Red Heart radish, described in its native land as xin li mei, meaning ‘in one’s heart beautiful.’ A unique selection from a hybrid with two variations so about half have light greenish-tan outer skins and light green stems and leaf veins, the remainder medium-rose outer skins, rose stems and leaf veins. The roots of both types have the characteristic rose flesh, the ones with the darker skins having darker and more pungent hearts. Both are fine tasting and good looking, with plenty of spiciness, a rich sweet vegetable undertone and no harsh sharpness. Will grow as large as a big beet if given sufficient space. For autumn crops, a good keeper.

Additional Information

Winter Radishes

Culture: Winter radishes are slower-growing than the quick summer kind. Many grow deeper roots than summer radishes, often cylindrical in shape. Thin to 6" apart. They hold much longer than summer radishes but if they start to bolt, pinch off the tops. Ideal in September and October from an early July planting, and can be stored for winter.


Raphanus sativus

⅛ oz packet sows 12½ ft; 1 oz sows 100 ft. Radishes average 2,500 seeds/oz.

Culture: Minimum germination temperature 40°, optimal range 55–85°.

Note: We cannot ship packets greater than ½ oz. (14 grams) of radishes into the Willamette Valley. The State of Oregon prohibits shipping any commercial quantity of untreated Brassica, Raphanus or Sinapis because of a quarantine to control Blackleg.
