Oh what fun!  Hunt Easter "egg" radishes in your own garden.  Amazing array of colors will pop from your garden and straight into your salad bowl.  Easter egg radishes are perfect for a children's garden for two really good reasons:  they grow VERY fast and produce amazing bright, happy colors that kids are just drawn to.  It truly is like an underground Easter egg hunt.  You don't know what color you are going to get till you pull them up!

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.
