This is a really easy to grow, tasty radish. Our seed package had multicolor radish, so we got a nice array of colors: White, red, purple, pink.

From your friends at Botanical Interests, inc. - Easter Egg Radish is a bright color blend of red, white, rose pink, purple, and bi-color (red top, white bottom) that is perfect for salads and relish trays. At harvest time, you can have your own ‘Easter Egg hunt’ for the most colorful radish! Kids will love searching for the variety of colors. After harvest, you can eat them fresh in salads or slice and add them to sandwiches for a bit of crunch and color. As a spring radish, they are best grown in the cool periods of spring and fall.

I have grown this plant several times. It is definitely easy to grow. The radishes are beautiful, but slightly pungent. If you don't mind a little spice to your radishes this is a great one.
