Hailstone Summer Radish

(25 days) Open-pollinated. The only hailstone we want to see on the farm. Vaughan, in 1904, called it “the quickest growing radish on record,” and described it as round, smooth, snowy-white with a short tender taproot. Produces crisp juicy roots 1" in diameter that hold well and have some heat. Unusually small foliage but intolerant to crowding.

Additional Information

Summer Radishes

Culture: A favorite for children’s gardens because quick and easy to grow with minimal fertility requirements. Summer radishes may be sown almost as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring. They emerge rapidly and grow quickly for a good fresh spring food. Thin to at least 2" for attractive uniform roots. They develop more pungency in hot temperatures and dry conditions than in cool moist weather. Most are ready for harvest at about the size of a half dollar and will rapidly get woody if allowed to grow much larger.

Culinary: Parboil the greens and roots separately, then eat them together as very early spring salad. And the pot liquor, mmmm…


Raphanus sativus

⅛ oz packet sows 12½ ft; 1 oz sows 100 ft. Radishes average 2,500 seeds/oz.

Culture: Minimum germination temperature 40°, optimal range 55–85°, optimal temperature 85°. Emergence takes 11 days at 50°, only 4 days at 68°, 76% normal seedlings at 50°, 97% normal at 59°.

Disease: FY: Fusarium Yellows

Note: We cannot ship packets greater than ½ oz. (14 grams) of radishes into the Willamette Valley. The State of Oregon prohibits shipping any commercial quantity of untreated Brassica, Raphanus or Sinapis because of a quarantine to control Blackleg.
