The classic fat, round, red radish of my childhood. Cherry belle has moderate heat and nice crispy white flesh, perfect for snacks, salads and slaws of all types. Holds well in the field with very little splitting for prolonged harvest. Prefers cool growing conditions so enjoy spring and fall.
Days to Maturity: 24 days
Sow seed in early spring 3 cm. apart and 1- 1.5 cm. deep. Space rows 20-30 cm apart. Radishes prefer cool, moist conditions and will become hot and pithy in hot, dry weather. They are best in the cool spring weather. Keep well watered to ensure mild taste and crisp roots. Sow every week or two throughout the spring for a steady supply. Floating row covers will keep flea beetles and cabbage root maggots at bay.
