Gardeners' Notes:

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.

Neutral Farmerdill On Aug 15, 2005, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

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.
