I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Organic French Breakfast Radish
Raphanus sativus Organic French Breakfast Radish (23 days)
Approximately 90-140 radish seeds per gram
French Breakfast radish was first mentioned by B.K. Bliss and son of New York in 1870.
It kind of reminds me of one of those bullet Popsicles I used to get when I was a kid because of its cool red and white colors.
French Breakfast is an oblong radish that grows 1 1/2 to 2 inches, scarlet up top in color with a bright white tip. Sweet, tender and mild. Perfect for salads.
1884 D.M. Ferry Seed Catalog says about French Breakfast Radish.... "A medium sized radish, olive shaped, small top, of quick growth, very crisp and tender, of a beautiful scarlet color, except near the root, which is pure white. A splendid variety for the table, not only on account of its excellent qualities, but for its beautiful color."
1922 Templin-Crockett-Bradley Co. says about French Breakfast Radish.... "A most beautiful radish of true olive shape. Color bright carmine with clear white in the lower portion. French Breakfast is an exceedingly early variety and must be eaten as soon as fully developed to have it firm and crisp. Very tender and mild."
***Note the picture on the cover of the above mentioned 1922 catalog. It has proudly pictured the French Breakfast Radish.
Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region. OR, TX
I have not planted these yet. I am waiting on the German Giant radishes from Sustainable seed to get big enough to harvest and make room to plant these. I have had really good results with the other Radishes from Sustainable Seed, and am sure these French Breakfast radishes will follow suit, and do very well.
