Raphanus sativus
RADISH-WATERMELON-(SHINREMEI) also known as Rose heart or Red Meat, is an heirloom Chinese Daikon radish. It originated in China, where they are called Shinrimei which means ‘Beauty in the Heart’ A large round root vegetable with a crisp texture & a mild to sweet peppery flavour. Unlike many other radishes, the intensity of this radish lessens as it matures. The flesh is hotter toward the outside & sweeter toward the centre. Growing to approx 7.5cm in diameter, it displays a white outer skin at the top with green shoulders & a pink base that covers a bright red to magenta inner flesh. This amazing Chinese heirloom radish produces large roots.

Sow at regular intervals from early spring to early summer & also early Autumn. Radishes grow well in most soils, but prefer rich, moist free draining soils. Sow very thinly into well cultivated soil. Thin out seedlings to 3-5cm apart.
