Product Description - Organic Red Radish Seeds - Open Pollinated

Red radish is a root vegetable. The taste of red radish is sharp and biting, ranging from the juicy crispness of red globe radishes to the pungency of turnip-shaped black radishes. Their edible green tops impart a peppery flavor to salads. Red radishes, also called table radishes, are a common cultivar of Raphanus sativus, a Brassicaceae family member. Vitamin C, folate, fiber, and potassium are all contained in red radishes. As is the case with many radishes, red radishes contain active enzymes that help indigestion. The red radish is a hardy annual that thrives in cooler climates. Red radish roots come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They may be globe-shaped or long and tapered. Red radishes are cultivated and consumed worldwide, mostly raw as a crunchy salad vegetable with a pungent taste.

Benefits/Uses of Red Radish

  • It is a potent detoxifying agent that is particularly beneficial in the treatment of jaundice.
  • Reduces the red blood cell distribution in people with jaundice by increasing the blood's oxygen supply.
  • It is a strong diuretic and it can significantly increase urine output.
  • They are utilized to treat a variety of urinary tract disorders.
  • Red radish is low in calories, fat, and carbohydrates.
  • Red Radishes have a high potassium content, which can help lower blood pressure.
  • Additionally, it is believed that red radishes help to protect red blood cells and improve the blood's oxygen supply.

Planting and Care for Red Radish

Sowing Red Radish Seeds

  • Seeds should be planted in a grow bag and placed in a sunny location. If red radishes are planted in excessive shade — or even when neighboring vegetable plants shade them — they can devote all their resources to growing larger leaves.
  • The roots of red radish plants are the primary reason they are cultivated. Although the soil should be organic matter-rich, it should not be compacted. If your soil is more clay-like, incorporate some sand to help it drain better.
  • If your soil is deficient in organic matter, work a few inches of aged compost or an all-purpose fertilizer such as veg and fruit mixture into the planting site as soon as the soil is workable.
  • Sow the seeds 4 to 6 weeks prior to the average date of the last frost for spring planting.
  • It is best to directly plant red radish seeds in the big grow bags to avoid disturbing their roots.

Growing Red Radish

  • After a week, thin red radishes to about 2 inches apart. Overcrowded plants do not thrive.
  • Moisture that is consistent and even is critical. Maintain an even moisture level in the soil but avoid overwatering. A drip irrigation system is an excellent method for accomplishing this.
  • In dry conditions, a thin layer of mulch around the red radishes may help preserve moisture.

Harvesting Red Radish

  • Red radishes mature quickly, as little as three weeks after planting for specific varieties.
  • Harvest when the roots reach a diameter of approximately 1 inch at the soil surface. Extract one and test it before harvesting the remainder.
  • Radishes should not be left in grow bags beyond the mature stage; their condition can quickly deteriorate.
  • Remove the tops and the thin root tails, wash the radishes, and thoroughly dry them. Refrigerate in plastic bags.
  • Separately stored red radish greens can keep for up to three days.

Precautions while growing Red Radish

  • Radishes should be watered often in hot and dry weather. Water them with watering cans to prevent an unnecessary supply. Excessive water encourages excessive leaf growth.
  • Red Radishes that receive insufficient water develop a woody flavor. Aged compost should be used to prepare planting beds. At midseason, side-dress radishes with aged compost.
  • If grown during the long summer days, red radishes will bolt or go to seed. In midsummer, cover plants to ensure they receive 8 hours of sunlight rather than 12. Water red radishes uniformly to promote rapid growth. Red radishes have a spicy flavor due to their slow development.

Common Problems affecting Red Radish Plants and Solutions

Aphids and root maggots will invade red radishes. Remove infected foliage with a pin. Generally, red radishes develop rapidly enough that pests are not an issue.

The appearance of small chips on the upper side of the ground portion of red radish can be attributed to various species. This mode of damage can be caused by slugs, woodlice, rodents, and even birds. If the scars are very shallow, they were most likely caused by slugs or woodlice's rasping mouthparts. If bits or bites have been taken, search for more giant creatures as the perpetrators. Row cover and mesh are available to serve as a physical barrier between the pest and the seed, but they must be applied roughly at planting time.

Numerous soil-dwelling insect larvae will wreak havoc on the underground portion of red radishes. The main antagonist is the root maggot, a tiny fly larva. To avoid root maggots, cover the freshly seeded bed with a Lightweight Floating Row Cover to prevent the adult from laying eggs. To provide the best cover, drape the fabric over the seedbed prior to sowing rather than after the seedlings emerge. The adult fly is drawn to the planted bed's moist soil.

Flea beetles are responsible for the many small holes that seem to be shot through the leaves of red radishes (and other crops). Prevent them by using Lightweight Floating Row Covers at the start of the season. Biopesticides are widely recommended for sucking and biting pests.

All seeds have germinated

I am really excited for the final produce at harvesting and I am pretty much impressed by the germination rate of these seeds. You can go to my YouTube channel and check out the video https://youtube.com/@ShraddhaOnkar?si=2ZuZMXI8KB91V3j3

Oh so delicious Arugula!

This image is after 2 harvests. I may have planted them too close, but I love baby salad greens and so this size of jarjeer is the best for me. Please plant a little farther apart if you like larger leaves.

Most seeds germinated and are thriving in Gujarat on my apartment balcony. Very happy with the purchase. The soil is from seed2plant.in as well.
