Radish - Mooli Mino Early
This variety produces long, white roots with a mild flavour and crunchy texture, great for stir-fries or use grated raw in salads.
Sow outdoors thinly, from May to August, where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Keep moist, as dry conditions may cause roots to toughen. Thin plants to 15cm apart. Cloche protection in autumn can extend the harvest season. Harvest from August to November. Harvest alternate roots, allowing others to mature fully, up to 35cm long.
