I grew these for years in SE England and found them reliable. Very tender and mild when young. I agree that successional sowing of small quantities is a good thing. They certainly developed large seed pods with plenty of seed to save
These radishes have a distinctive coloring; red upper 1/2, white lower 1/2. 3 or 4 times as long as they are wide. Fairly mild. Matures in as little as 28-30 days, gets a little woody after another 2-3 weeks, so plant in succession, 2 weeks apart thru the spring.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Menifee, California Thousand Oaks, California Geneseo, Illinois North Billerica, Massachusetts Bark River, Michigan Marshall, Missouri Los Alamos, New Mexico Aston, Pennsylvania North Augusta, South Carolina Old Hickory, Tennessee
