Black Spanish Round Radish - The Winter Radish

Very old heirloom radish, grown in Spain since at least the 16th Century and probably long before.  It was first introduced around 1824, and is still a very popular choice for a winter radish. Sow in late summer or early fall. They will keep all winter stored in moist sand.

Details

It has large turnip-shaped 3-4” diameter globes, deep black skin, solid crisp spicy pure-white flesh with tall tops that are great for winter storage.

History

The radish is indigenous to Europe and Asia. Domestication is believed to have occurred 5,000 years ago. Radishes were well known to the Greeks and Romans.

Uses

Radishes are mostly eaten fresh. Great in salads, sliced with salt or pickled. 

Growing Tip

Harvest radishes as soon as they are mature, if you let them them go too long they will be tough and woody.
