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

1935 Isabell's Seed Catalog says about Cincinnati Market Radish...
"The finest long red radish. This superior forcing radish was bred up by the Glass Gardeners near Cincinnati and no finer radishes go into any market. The tops are so small that the radishes may stand touching one another in the rows. Grows perfectly straight and smooth, 6 to 7 inches in length. Skin scarlet colored, very thin, the flesh crisp, brittle and of a delightful flavor. Ready for market in 35 days"
