Radish – Cherry Belle – Raphanus sativus
Soil & Water: Radishes prefer well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter. They have low nutrient requirements; especially avoid excess nitrogen to promote good root development. Preferred soil pH is 6.0-7.0.
Planting & Growing: Cool weather is needed for best development. Sow seed directly wherever there is extra space in the garden. Radishes make good, living row markers for slower germinating crops like carrots.
Harvesting & Storage: Cherry Belle is used best when young and immature, less than 1″ in diameter. They may keep 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator.
