HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow the first crop of 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. Scarlet Globe can tolerate some heat.

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

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 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.

Scarlet Globe is an early variety of radish that will give you a mature yield in 23 days! A favorite of many home gardeners, this variety has a bright red globe and crisp, mild, white flesh. Best grown in cool weather! Requires consistently moist soil. This variety self sows freely and may be invasive...deadhead if you do not want volunteer seedlings.
Scarlet Globe radishes, though their exact origin is unknown, certainly have been growing in America since the late 19th century. After reviewing an assortment of the early radishes then available, the June 1913 issue of "Garden Magazine" said of Scarlet Globe, "it remains in good table condition longer than any of the early sorts mentioned above."
