Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Comet Radish Seeds
Comet Radish Seeds (25 days)
A very popular market radish in the 1950's, the Comet radish has a long history including an All American Selections Win in 1936.
Comet radish has a ruby red skin and crisp snow white flesh, with a globed and almost perfectly round shape, making it a popular supermarket variety for years.
Comet radish is early at 25 days and many enjoy its crunchy flesh earlier at only 3/4" to 1" in diameter.
One of the few radishes that can be grown in hot weather and still develop to size.
1942 Burpee Seed Catalog says about comet radish seeds...."Bred to meet the increasing demand for an early radish that has the same qualities as Vick's Scarlet Globe, but with a rounded instead of an olive-shaped root. Comet fille the bill; the roots are globe to olive-shaped, small tap-roots, bright scarlet and for eating and keeping qualities it is surpassed by none; it will remain crisp and solid for a long time."
