Radish - French Breakfast
French Breakfast is one of the most famous varieties but despite its name, I have yet to see it eaten first thing in the morning in France! This variety produces long, red roots with a white tip.
Sow from March to September thinly in shallow drills, 1.5cm deep with 15-30cm between the rows. During hot weather water the base of the seed drills first before sowing seeds and covering with dry soil. Radish plants do not require transplanting and if sown carefully, thinning is not necessary. Sow a few seeds in any spare areas for a quick crop. Ready to harvest around 4 weeks from sowing.
