Radish - Cherry Belle Seeds - Organic
Cherry Belle Radish is one of the earliest radishes to mature in spring. The round, smooth, scarlet 1" roots have crisp, tender flesh that are perfect for fresh eating all season. Their attractive bright red color make them a desirable addition to the garden.
Radish seeds can be planted outdoors.
Sow directly in the garden 2-3 weeks before the last frost date.
Plant seeds 1/4" deep and 2" apart and rows can be 6" wide. They should come up in 5-7 days depending on soil and weather conditions. Sow in early spring for an early crop, and again every 3 weeks for an extended radish harvest.
They grow best in average, well-drained soil, and full sun. For mild radishes, mulch and keep watered to speed growth.

Radish roots and leaves are edible.
Crunchy raw radishes are delicious eaten whole from the garden or chopped and added to salads, and sandwiches. The radish tops are completely edible and have a coarse texture so use the young and tender leaves. They can be cooked like any other greens or used fresh in salads.
Cherry Belle radishes really are cherry red and are harvested when they begin to reach 1" in diameter. Radishes are usually the first seeds planted in the spring garden and the first thing harvested. It may take less than a month from seed to table. Radishes have the best flavor when grown in cool weather and full sun. Use thinnings in salads.
