25 days to reach maturity
Radish 'Diana' produces round purple, fading to white roots. They can be ready to harvest within 25 days and can be sown from March through until September.
Harvest 3-5 weeks after sowing. Pick radishes any time after the tuber has developed but they will be larger if left in the ground. The tuber should be visible through the soil or you can brush some of the soil from the radish top to check the tuber.
Sow seeds in early spring to early summer, and again from late summer, 12-15 cm apart and 10-15 mm deep. Germination takes 4-10 days. continue sowing every second week to have continuous supply.
Do not plant rootcrops or cabbage family in the same spot, alternate with legume family or light feeders like salads first.
They can be grown in pots in a light potting mix. Provide the wide pot at lease 10 deep.
Vitamin C and other minerals.
The crunchy taproots are edible with a sweetly spicy flavour. They are great sliced or grated in salads and make beautiful garnishes.
