HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Since Black Spanish are winter radishes, they should be planted about two months before the first expected fall frost. Plant Black Spanish round radish seeds in very rich, deeply worked up soil about 1/2" deep and 1" apart; later, thin the seedlings 4-6" apart. Black Spanish radishes do not tolerate heat well.

Growing: Radishes do well with consistently moist soil and the addition of organic matter such as compost. Do not allow the soil to dry out, but also avoid overwatering as this can cause splitting.

Harvesting: Black Spanish radishes have the best taste when harvested at 3-4" in diameter. They have a strong, hot flavor and store well for winter use.

Seed Saving: Radishes will cross pollinate with all other varieties of radish, and must be isolated by at least half a mile from other varieties to protect genetic purity. Allow the radish plant to fully mature and send up a flowering stalk; the pods will form and turn from green to brown. Pick the brown pods and allow them to dry for several days. Thresh out the Black Spanish round radish seeds by opening the pods by hand, or by applying pressure to crush them. Store the seeds in a cool, dry place for up to five years.

too early to tell

These radishes cannot be planted until end of august, so it's too early to review them but the seeds arrived quickly in the mail.

Nice packaging!

I ordered 29 packets of seeds. They arrived quickly and beautifully packaged in mylar with sort of a zip lock closure. I can't speak to the viability of the seeds, but I will update after I plant them. Since I just moved to Florida, not sure which of these will grow here. Must get these winter vegetables in the ground soon as it is almost December.

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

Black Spanish Round is a European winter radish variety that produces 4" radishes with deep-black skin and solid, crisp, pure-white flesh. Matures in 65 days and keeps well in good storage conditions. Space these plants farther apart than the small red varieties. It tolerates cool weather and is a good variety for fall planting.
This 16th century European favorite, actually a large winter radish, can be traced far back into European history; this is one of the most ancient varieties of radish available. As well as being valued for its rather sharp flavor, it had various medical benefits. Black Spanish radishes certainly would have been found in the colonial gardens of early America.
