Organic Radish: Easter Egg Planting
Easter Egg Radish Seeds prefer moist soil with plenty of added organic matter. Adding
nitrogen fertilizer or nitrogen rich manure close to planting may produce lush
tops and small roots. In early May, sow seeds 1/2" deep, 1" apart and in
rows 12" apart. Thin to 2" apart once seedlings are established. For
continuous harvest, make additional plantings every one to two weeks. Keep soil
moist for uninterrupted growth and best quality.
Organic Radish: Easter Egg Harvesting
Easter Egg Radish can be harvested about
30 days after planting when they become rounded in shape. Pull immediately
before splitting. Winnow to remove remaining chaff.
You Know? Before olive trees were introduced to Ancient Egypt,
seeds were an important source of oil. Certain varieties of radish are still
grown for oil production today. Although not popular for human consumption (the
flavor is very strong), it has potential use as a bio-fuel.
