Red Meat produces quite large round roots with red topped white skin and delightful deep rose coloured flesh. Because of how visually beautiful this radish is, it is ideal for slicing for both fresh or stir fry use
The thought of sowing radish seeds brings back childhood memories for countless gardeners who were given the vegetable to grow as an introduction to gardening, because of its ease to grow. Nowadays there is a vast range of radish and they taste beautiful when sliced in salads or taken whole on a picnic as a snack.
WHEN TO SOW
June to August
WHERE TO SOW
Sow thinly in shallow drills 1.5cm (1/2in) deep with 30-35cm (12-14in) between the rows. During hot weather water the base of the seed drills first before sowing seeds and covering with dry soil.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Radish should not be transplanted. Gradually thin seedlings to 10cm (4in) apart and harvest as required.
