This one is really 30 days....not just edible size, but 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Best yeilding radish I know of. Holds well without splitting. Go easy on the nitrogen until the roots just begin to swell. Small leaves = big roots.

An old timer still widely available. A round red radish that will mature in 20 days.
