Round Black Spanish

Round Black Spanish Winter Radish

(65 days) Open-pollinated. For some real heat, try a slice of the venerable Black Spanish. Turnip-shaped 4" roots with corklike black exteriors have extremely pungent white flesh that loses some heat when boiled or stir-fried. Can be stored in the root cellar like carrots and beets in slightly moistened sand or layered into damp raked leaves. Dates back to the 16th-century conquistadors.

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.

Radishes

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°.

Disease: FY: Fusarium Yellows

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.
