White Icicle Radish Seeds (28 days)

Approximately 90-140 radish seeds per gram

Was also know as "Icicle" or "Pearl Forcing" radish.  Was called "new" in Maule's 1903 seed catalog. 

Long radishes were once all the rage.  Why have a small ball type radish when you could grow three times the mass in the same surface area?  It wasn't until the late 1930s and early 1940s that ball or globe radishes became popular. 

White Icicle radishes have pure white flesh with a spice that warms the tongue, but doesn't bite back.  Old seed catalogs say it was sweet and mild in flavor.  You be the judge.

The roots are 6-8"s long, tapered and about an 1" in diameter. 

Perfect for the home gardener and make a great display for market growers. 

1924 Portland Seed Co. Catalog says about White Icicle Radish...
"This superb radish is the finest and longest of the very early, pure white varieties.  Planted in the spring, is ready for use in 20 to 25 days; their long, slender form and pure, paper-white skin are most attractive when bunched for market.  This radish is not only crisp and tender when young but also retains these qualities until the roots attain large size; is excellently adapted for forcing purposes or successive sowing in open ground and gives a continuous supply of tender, crisp radishes for the table or market throughout the season."

Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region .  CA, FL, OR, TX

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.
