These guys are crisp, mild, with just a hint of sweetness and are SUPER easy to grow! Ready in less than 30 days. Would plant every year! No complaints!!

Sweet and easy to grow

Quick to germinate. They fill out fast and are one of the sweetest and least bitter spring radishes I've grown. I've been sewing them all season since Februrary and they're still doing well even with some early season heat.

The pretty darling of spring breakfasts, easy to grow in irrigated tubs or planters even in a volatile Phoenix springtime. The big seeds are easy for kids to plant and give a gratifying harvest in a very short period of time. Even the greens are interesting in salads. Great scrubbed and sprinkled with flake salt. Snappy, spicy and zesty without too much bite - kind of like me! ;)

Love the shape!

Have become a fan of all the varied coloured radishes that Botanical Interest Seeds sells. And these have become a favorite of my family for the simple reason they can be cut lengthwise to fit on sandwiches and they pickle so well!!

Mixed feelings

3 out of 5 stars Jun 2, 2021
I planted these twice (mid-March and mid-April) in grow bags. Great germination rate. The greens seemed to grow fine, but the fruits were very small and a large number (75%) ended up with a long, very skinny fruit. The taste is great and they are fun for the kids to plant. May try in the ground next time.

Owner Response: Hello Greg, Thank you for leaving a review. There are a few factors that would affect radishes in this way, soil fertility and pH, poorly drained soil, hot & dry weather, or excessive watering. Excessive nitrogen in the soil would cause the fruit to get this shape and the size to be small in general. Good luck with the next sowing!

Great Radishes

LOVE these Breakfast Radishes, they've got just the right amount of "bite", not bitter or too peppery like some other varieties I've tried. These are perfect for in salads or even by themselves, they're now my "go to" radishes.

Solid and trustworthy

I had great success with these seeds, both in germination and in growing. I'm a beginner gardener, and these certainly helped in building understanding and confidence. When I grow them again, I plan to plant less seeds in the same space to avoid thinning out; I may not have the right technique for thinning because I managed to pull more than intended. Regardless, these grew great, tasted wonderful, and I will be ordering these again!

The only radish I'll eat

Delicate flavor. In France they're spread with a bit of sweet butter and salt. Yummy.
