Nero Tondo Radish
Large 5-10cm, round roots with crisp white flesh and matt black skin. These radishes have a pungent, spicy flavour that mellows when cooked. Try tossing slices with olive oil or butter and sauté, braise or roast. Nero Tondo is more uniform and resistant to bolting than regular Black Spanish. It stores well and provides nutritious winter food.
Days to Maturity: 50 days
Sow late spring thru mid-summer for great, crisp fall and winter radishes, similar to daikon. Space 4" apart, and roots will get 4-6" in diameter, and make some serious winter food that is both nutritious and beautiful. This radish stores well throughout winter and into the spring for plentiful eating. Keep well watered to ensure crisp roots. Floating row covers will keep flea beetles and cabbage root maggots at bay.
