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.

Positive Jan_FL_zone8 On Sep 2, 2009, Jan_FL_zone8 from Lady Lake, FL wrote:

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.
