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

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.
We were able to plant and harvest two containers full of these beauties this Spring. Germination rate was excellent, growth was rapid, Greens and radishes were absolutely DELICIOUS! We are almost exclusively container gardeners.
One of our favorites

love my breakfast radishes - have harvested some twice now & have more growing. I am very pleased with them & how fast they grew - didn't realize I'd get to enjoy them that soon. thank you
Fast and Tasty!
Fantastic germination rate and they came up VERY fast - faster than any other radish in my garden (5 varieties). These are a favorite across the board for flavor, germination rate, time to harvest etc. Ordering more today!
Nice and quick
These radishes great. They are pretty and tasty and were ready to harvest relatively quickly. Had a good germination rate.
