HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow the first crop of these large red radishes in rich soil, about four weeks before the last expected spring frost. Plant them in deeply worked up soil about 1/2" deep and 1" apart; later, thin the seedlings 2-3" apart or more for larger radishes. For a continuous harvest, plant a new crop every two weeks. Since most radishes do not tolerate heat well, it is best to avoid planting them in the heat of midsummer. For a fall crop and winter storage, plant about two months before the first expected fall frost.

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: This variety tastes best when harvested at 1-2" in diameter.

Seed Saving: Champion 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 seeds by opening the pods by hand, or by applying pressure to crush them. Store Champion radish seeds in a cool, dry place for up to five years.

Thank you to EverWildFarms

I have been planting different strains of radish for few years and will be planting Champion too. I ordered well before I plant so I will have to sow & harvest to give my opinion on it, I have not had any issues with orders. Only issues are not fault of EverWildFarms as sometimes a seed or strain will sell out fast as this year many have sold out and will again more and more people are planting gardens for first time or in a long time, and many as my self have been gardening none stop 40+ years, so look and buy early as you can & learn how to preserve seed you buy and save your own seeds/cuttings/transplanting stock to prevent not having anything to plant. I already save some which do well for me in my area. I grow & save my own Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Basel, Mississippi Pink Eye Purple Hull Peas, Peppers, Melons, Garlic, Okra & Others.

Top notch packaging

I was actually going to drop you a quick note as I was so pleased w/ your packaging. Of course you cant eat packaging, but I'm sure these seeds are going to be great.
I actually had trouble finding this strain of radish which diverted me from my usual sources, but I'm glad to have found you. You can count on me for a return customer. I am especially excited to try some of your wildflower blends.

DESCRIPTION

Champion is a large Cherry Belle type radish. The bright-red roots of this vegetable average 1.5" in diameter with firm mild flesh. It grows large without getting pithy and holds well in storage. This variety is resistant to cold temperatures and is excellent for early or late plantings. It matures in just 25 days.
Radishes, in their early forms, come from the ancient civilizations of China, Greece, and Egypt; soon, surrounding nations also cultivated this vegetable. While the Oriental nations cultivated the large, elongated radishes, most of the more delicate round varieties such as Champion were developed by the Dutch and the French. Champion radishes won the prestigious AAS Award in 1957.
