It's hard to describe just how much I love this radish! They're massive, crisp, marvelously juicy and, grown well, so sweet without any radish heat. They're a fall radish rather than a spring radish, so we sow them in early August here in the Finger Lakes, Zone 5. When harvested before hard frost and stored well, you'll easily enjoy them all winter in curries, soups, roasted and here's our favorite: Grate and dress them as fresh salad or slaw! We also ferment them in all manner of kimchi-esque ways. It's easy to savor their beautiful pigments in so many ways :)

2 of 5 Didn’t grow right January 2, 2020
Reviewer: Emma Percy from Clarence, NY United States  
I was excited to try these radishes, but much like the beets I grew, they stayed small and hard and pretty bitter. Not sure what I could do to have a better result with these.

5 of 5 Great germination May 11, 2018
Reviewer: Greg Morse from Bagley, MN United States  
These did not produce but at no fault of the seed. It was a late after thought,planted poorly and not taken care of.
What seeds I did plant germinated just fine, just other factors interfered for a good crop.
Have leftover from 2017 and plan on giving them a much better growing experience.
