Saisai Leaf

Saisai Leaf Winter Radish

(35 days) F-1 hybrid. An Asian radish developed primarily to provide leaves for salads, stir-fries and pickling. Harvest the juicy pale green succulent leaves when they are young and tender. Quick growing and slow to bolt. Can be allowed to grow full-sized daikon roots for a dual use. The roots are plumper, slightly shorter and milder than most daikons with a texture that pleased Clayton Carter of Fail Better Farm. They will keep all winter in the root cellar. Plants can be densely sown if grown only for their leaves.

Additional Information

Winter Radishes

Culture: Winter radishes are slower-growing than the quick summer kind. Many grow deeper roots than summer radishes, often cylindrical in shape. Thin to 6" apart. They hold much longer than summer radishes but if they start to bolt, pinch off the tops. Ideal in September and October from an early July planting, and can be stored for winter.

Radishes

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.
