Radish Pink Beauty - 50 Heirloom Seeds
Round to slightly oval, crisp roots are bright pink and not too spicy. We are rarely impressed with bunching radishes, but these are just darn good. Pink Beauty is all you could ever want in a bunching radish. An excellent market farm variety, praised as being better than many hybrids.
Tops are strong for bunching, roots resist cracking. Best when succession planted in spring and autumn, as radishes get spicier and have more pest pressures in the heat.
Radishes can be grown all season but they’re easiest during early autumn and spring, avoid extreme hot weather days though. Sow direct 12 mm deep and then thin seedlings to 2.5 - 5 cm apart. Keep the row short and sow small crops every 2 to 3 weeks for continual harvest over months. Keep soil moist to avoid toughness.
Radish is usually eaten raw, harvest while young and tender. Radish can be inter-planted with other crops such as carrots or beetroot for a fast harvest.
Harvest promptly when radishes are the size of large marbles. Leaves and developing seedpods are also tasty.
Plant radishes near beans, beets, celeriac, chervil, cucumber, lettuce, mint, parsnip, peas, spinach, squash, and tomatoes. Avoid planting near agastache or potatoes. It is said that planting 3 or 4 icicle radishes around the mound where you plant squash, and allowing them to grow and bloom, will prevent most pests of squash and cucumber.
