Champion Radish is a vibrant red vegetable that averages 1.5 inches in diameter with sweet and firm flesh. It can withstand cold temperatures, making it an excellent choice for early or late plantings.
Sow your radish seeds directly in the garden, about four weeks before the last expected ground frost, at a depth of ½ inch, 1 inch apart. Prepare a rich, moist, and deeply worked soil. Thin them to about 3 inches apart or more for larger radishes. For a continuous harvest, plant new ones every two weeks.
Radishes generally do not tolerate heat well, so avoid sowing them in the middle of summer. Harvest your radishes when they are 0.5 or 1 inch in diameter for the best taste.
