Radish, scientifically known as 'Raphanus sativus', is a delightfully crisp and peppery, fast growing, cool season vegetable available in snack and slicing size. A favorite for salads and roasting, radishes originate from the ancient civilizations of China, Greece, and Egypt and are popular in cuisines from around the world. Redemption Seeds' selection of radishes includes Oriental, hybrid and tasty old-fashioned heirloom varieties that have pungent with spicy flavor profiles. In addition to various sizes, we offer several varieties that are ideal for container growing and have interesting color options like blush pink, golden, deep purple and crimson flesh. Ideally grown in spring and fall, radishes have excellent shelf life and our selections have been trial tested for disease and rot resistance, heat tolerance, crisp texture and complex flavor.
