Popular round, scarlet roots grow to a good size in under 30 days!

Flesh is firm, crisp and white. Average: 28 days


Detailed planting instructions:

Grows best in cool (50 F to 65 F), moist weather. Hot weather reduces quality and increases pungency. Late plantings may bolt before edible root forms.

About 3 to 6 weeks before average last frost, direct seed ½ inch deep, 1 inch apart, in rows 12 inches apart. Thin to about 2-inch spacings. Crowded plants may not produce high-quality roots. Use thinings in salads.

For continuous harvest, make additional plantings every 1 to 2 weeks until temperatures average in the mid 60s F, or plant varieties with different maturity dates in a single planting. Resume planting when weather cools in fall.

Keep soil moist for uninterrupted growth and best quality.

Adding nitrogen fertilizer or nitrogen rich manure close to planting may produce lush tops and small roots.

Can be sown in the same row with carrots, parsley, parsnips and other slow germinating crops. The radishes help to break soil crust for the weaker and later-germinating crops.

Because they mature quickly, radishes make a good intercrop along with slower growing crops, such as other cabbage family crops, or tomato- or squash family crops. Or follow radish harvest with summer succession crops such as beans, or fall-harvested crops.

To help reduce disease, do not plant radishes or other cole crops in the same location more than once every three or four years.


HARVESTING

The time from planting to harvest is 20 to 30 days for spring radishes, such as the Champion. Simply pull up the whole plant when the radishes are the right size.

SAVING SEEDS

Open pods by hand for small amounts of seed. Pods that do not open when rubbed between hands can be pounded with hammer or mallet. Winnow to remove remaining chaff.

Champion Radish July 12, 2014
Reviewer: catherine claytor from ann arbor, MI United States  
Your Champion Radish seeds have shown
good growth and sharp, very strong and
great snap, pulling them out and eating
under the sun.  .
Planted them in early June and have already
pulled some for salads. Delicious!
Now I have opened the second packet
and hope for the best. Really fine radishes.
Thank You   CC

Heirloom Seeds July 2, 2014
Reviewer: SRH2767 from Trenton, IL United States  
I bought a couple packets of seeds to see how they would do compared to the store bought brands and they are awesome!  Everything I grow is a vibrant, healthy plant!  I am an experienced gardener, and I even worked in the green house at Home Depot for 3 years, and these seeds are the best I've ever planted.  The packaging is also outstanding, in that the seeds are packed in Mylar and the seeds can be stored for up to 5 years!

Great Tasting! May 16, 2014
Reviewer: Marv  
Just harvested my first 'Champion' radish, it was exactly how I envision a radish should look like. Round shape with a beautiful red skin and snow-white flesh and tasted better than any radishes I had previously grown.
