Radish – Sparkler
The sparkler radish has a striking appearance with a vibrant red globe and white tip. This is a delicate radish with a crisp taste originating from the Dutch and French traditions. A great flavour and colour addition for salads!
Season - all year round; Sow 1cm deep direct into garden bed; Space 3-5cm apart; Germination period between 4 and 12 days; Soil temperature between 8°C and 30°C; Harvest time approx. 5 to 7 weeks.
Radishes prefer well drained, loose soil that is high in organic matter. They prefer full sun, and will tolerate part shade. For best flavour, radishes need cool conditions and moist soil. Sow with slower germinating crops like carrots and parsnips, as radishes mature quickly and break the soil for weaker germinating seeds.
Good companion plants – leeks, lettuce, spinach and tomatoes
