Radish - Dragon F1 Hybrid
This variety is quicker maturing and with a slightly milder taste than China Rose. Earliest sowings are ready in 50 days whilst later sowings provide delicious winter radishes. The smooth, pinky red-skinned roots are best pulled when about 10cm long and are superb sliced in salads and in stir fries.
Sow from April to July, earliest sowings ready in 50 days. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm deep in drills 30cm apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 1cm apart. Best pulled when 10cm in length. Later sowings store for winter salads.
