French Breakfast

French Breakfast Radish

(26 days) Open-pollinated. Favored in Paris markets since before 1879, and our best-selling radish in the farmer-sized packets. “A medium-sized radish, olive-shaped, small top, of quick growth, very crisp and tender, of a beautiful scarlet color, except near the tip, which is pure white. A splendid variety for the table, on account of its excellent quality and its beautiful color.” —From D.M. Ferry & Co’s Descriptive Catalog, 1902. Gets pithy earlier than many others.

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…

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°.

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.
