A tough radish to grow. Needs consistant temperatures in the upper 60's to low 70's to stay sweet. One day at 80 degrees and they get hotter than a fire cracker... other wise, if the weather cooperates, they are the one of the most tender and succulent radish out there.

A 25 day round bright red with white tip radish. This one is pretty but is not as early as Cherry Belle or as dependable as Early Scarlet Globe. A high percentage tend to bolt, even when competing cultivars have zero plants bolting.
