Raphanus sativus
RADISH-ORIENTAL-GREEN QINGLUOBO (TREATED) is a two toned radish originating from China and commonly recognised for its lime green colour both inside and out.   It grows from 12-25cm long and gets hotter as it matures if it is allowed to develop in the sun.  For a milder flavour plant in mid Summer or Autumn and harvest in Winter.   Can be fermented, grated or sliced and added to salads, stir fry or soup or eaten raw.  It tastes a bit like horseradish with a sweet undertone. Grows best in cool climates and can bolt in warmer climates but produces pretty purple flowers.

Any seeds IMPORTED from overseas must be TREATED now according to the new bio-security law. Thus this batch of Qingluobo is treated. If you save the seeds and replant the following year these seeds are considered NOT TREATED.

How to Grow Oriental Green Qingluobo  Radish

  1. Soil Preparation is preferably loose, well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Before planting, amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure to improve its texture and fertility.
  2. Plant the radish seeds directly into the garden bed in early spring or Autumn, when temperatures are cool. Place the seeds 2-3 cm (0.8-1.2 inches) deep and 5 cm (2 inches) apart, in rows that are spaced 15-20 cm (6-8 inches) apart.
  3. Water to keep the soil evenly moist throughout the growing season. Water deeply once a week or more frequently during hot, dry weather.
  4. Fertilising is not required as these radishes are light feeders.  However, you can give them a boost by applying a balanced fertiliser (such as 10-10-10) once a month throughout the growing season.
  5. Thin the radish seedlings after they have emerged.  One plant every 10-15 cm (4-6 inches). This will give each radish enough room to grow to its full size.
  6. Harvesting Oriental Green – Qingluobo radishes can be done in about 30-45 days, depending on the growing conditions. Pull up the radishes when they are about 5-8 cm (2-3 inches) in diameter, before they become tough and woody.
