Giant Radish - 10g Seeds

The radish (Raphanus sativus) is an edible root vegetable of the Brassicaceae family that was domesticated in Europe in pre-Roman times. Radishes are grown and consumed throughout the world, being mostly eaten raw as a crunchy salad vegetable.

They have numerous varieties, varying in size, flavor, color and the length of time they take to mature. Radishes of spicy varieties owe their sharp flavor to the various chemical compounds produced by the plants, including glucosinolate, myrosinase, and isothiocyanate.

They are sometimes grown as companion plants and suffer from few pests and diseases. They germinate quickly and grow rapidly, smaller varieties being ready for consumption within a month while larger daikon varieties taking several months.

Some radishes are grown for their seeds: daikon, for instance, may be grown for oil production. Others are used for sprouting and both roots and leaves are sometimes served cooked. Varieties of radish are now broadly distributed around the world, but there are almost no archeological records available to help determine its early history and domestication. However, scientists tentatively locate the origin of Raphanus sativus in southeast Asia, as this is the only region where truly wild forms have been discovered. India, central China, and central Asia appear to have been secondary centers where differing forms were developed. Radishes enter the historical record in 3rd century b.c. Greek and Roman agriculturalists of the 1st century a.d. gave details of small, large, round, long, mild, and sharp varieties.

Radishes (Raphanus sativus) are annual or biennial brassicaceous crops grown for their swollen tap-roots which can be globular, tapering or cylindrical. The root skin colour ranges from white through pink, red, purple, yellow and green to black but the flesh is usually white. Smaller types have a few leaves about 13 cm (5 in) long with round roots up to 2.5 cm (1 in) in diameter or more slender, long roots up to 7 cm (3 in) long. Both of these are normally eaten raw in salads. adishes are a fast-growing, annual, cool-season crop.

The seed germinates in three to four days in moist conditions with soil temperatures between 65 and 85 F (18 and 29 C). Best quality roots are obtained under moderate day lengths with air temperatures in the range 50 to 65 F (10 to 18 C). Under average conditions, the crop matures in three to four weeks, but in colder weather six to seven weeks may be required.
