RADISH – CHINA ROSE (aka KAIWARE)
A tasty radish from China, the Jesuits enjoyed this rose skinned, white fleshed radish variety so much in China during the 1800’s that they took it back to Europe with them. A very hardy autumn/winter variety also grows well in the spring. Pure white flesh is firm and relatively mild. The roots grow to 20cm long x 5cm wide and have a crisp, peppery flavour. The leaves can also be added to salads & stir fries. Also known as Kaiware Radish.
Sow at regular intervals from very early spring & also early autumn. Radishes grow well in most soils but prefer rich, moist free draining soils. Sow into well-cultivated soil. Sow very thinly. Thin out seedlings to 3-5cm apart.
