Raphanus sativus
The watermeon radish has a ball-shaped root that can reach 10 cm in diameter. Its green external color fades to white. When cutting a watermelon radish, you will find a nice red flesh just like a watermelon. The taste is delicate with a sweet and mild flavor. Excellent in salads, as a garnish or when cooking Asian dishes. Note: This is a fall crop , so sow after June 21st.
PLANTING TIME: Sowing may be done for the mid-June to August. SOIL: Ideal growing temperature is from 10 to 18⁰ C in a good, fertile soil. SPACING: Sow in rows spaced 45 to 50 cm apart and cleared 2.5 to 5 cm apart. GROWING TIPS: Keep moist. The faster they grow, the better the taste. Semi-shade. Radishes may be sown in wide rows (2 or 3 rows planted together). May also be sown with slower growing vegetables to mark rows. HARVESTING: When they have reached the size you wish. However, do not let them grow too large as this will affect the taste (tough or woody).
