Very quick to bulb up, small tops, it get about the business of producing radishes with out any extra flourishes. Uniform globe shape. Good flavor.

Very mild, crisp, not pithy, blemish-free, bug- and disease-free, pretty color, round shape. Better than any supposedly mild red radishes and we have tried. Grown in mid-central Florida in sping, self-watering containers, intensive method with home compost and vermiculite mix, picked at 1-inch diameter. Will grow these every year for sure.
