Easter Egg Radish Blend

Easter Egg Radish Blend is a mix of red, white, rose pink, purple, and bi-color (red top, white base) radishes. At harvest time, you can have your own “Easter egg” hunt for the most colorful radish! As a spring radish, they are best grown in the cool periods of spring and fall. Eat fresh in salads or add a bit of crunch and color to sandwiches. Easy to grow from seed. A fun choice for kids.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperature is above 40° F. Germinates fastest at 60° - 65° F. Successive sowings every 5 -10 days until late spring. Sow again in late summer until first day of fall frost.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Harvesting: Harvest when radish is no larger than 1½" in diameter. If allowed to grow bigger, Easter Egg will get pithy and hot.
