Raphanus sativus
Crimson Giant Radish Seeds (45 days)

Approximately 90-140 radish seeds per gram


Sometimes called Crimson "Giant Globe Radish" or "Giant Butter Radish".

Crimson Giant Radish seeds grow large 1½ - 2" globe shaped crimson red radishes. 

These great globes don't become hollow or pithy with their large size.

Twice the size of Cherry Belle. 

The flavor is rich with a buttery texture yet mild and not hot. 

1918 The Great Northern Seed Company says about Crimson Giant...
"It is a rapid growing sort, developing roots of a beautiful deep crimson color, which vary in shape from round to almost oval, weighing up to 1 ½ ounces per bulb, or about four times the weight of similar sorts; but not withstanding its immense size, does not get hollow or pithy, the flesh remaining sparkling white, solid, crisp and juicy, and of the mildest flavor."

1948 Oscar Wills Seed Company says about Crimson Giant Globe....
"An extremely large, globe shaped, deep crimson radish or superior quality, and standing very long before becoming pithy. The white flesh is solid, crisp, and mild. The white flesh is solid, crisp and mild."

TIP  Remember like any root crop radishes like sandy, loose soil to develop proper size roots.  If you don't have sandy soil try adding more organic matter to break up heavy clay soils.  You can grow radishes any time of the season, but they do much better in the cool weather of early spring and fall.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Radishes:

Radishes are a cool season crop and are quick to mature.  These heirloom seeds can be planted in spring or fall.  Due to the small size of these seeds and vegetables, most people will use a furrow technique when planting.  Sow in shallow furrow and cover with ¼” of sifted compost or light sand.  Later after the first few true leaves appear, it is best to then thin to final spacing.  Remember larger spacing will result in larger heirloom radishes but will take longer to mature.

Be sure to seed every few weeks if you desire a steady crop of heirloom radishes out of your garden.  Nothing can be easier to grow.  Consistent watering will tend to elimnate woody roots and a better tasting radish.

Seeding Care for Heirloom Radishes:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
