Additional Information

Daikon Radishes

Daikon means ‘big root’ in Japanese, and more acreage there is planted to daikons than any other vegetable.

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°.

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.
