How to Grow Cherry Belle Radish from Seed
Spring radish is a cool season crop best sown directly 4-6 weeks before final spring frost. Like many root vegetables, radish does not transplant well and should not be started indoors. Plant 2-3 seeds 1/2" deep and 1-2" apart in very loose, Organic, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.5-7.0. Seeds germinate in 3-7 days, thinning out best starts to 2-3" apart as true leaves establish. Minimize nitrogen content when fertilizing to reduce small spindly roots and excessive greens. Radish will bolt to seed in excessive summer heat if not provided afternoon shade or sown late.
Cherry Belle Radish seeds grow as upright cool season biennials that are also planted as frost-resistant annuals. In temperate regions, radishes are fast-maturing and easy to germinate. Planting radish seeds in early fall or spring is a delight, as they pop up in the garden as cold hardy root vegetables full of nutritional value.
Cherry Belle Radish in the Vegetable Garden
Spring radish is the smaller, shallow, and often pink or magenta variety that does not grow a deep taproot like winter radish. And whereas winter radish grows a broader, deeper root requiring 50-70 days until harvest, spring radish can be harvested as soon as 25 days and is one of the fastest maturing crops available. Try the classic Cherry Belle radish for a quick zesty harvest or fill the garden bed with unique French Breakfast, Purple Plum, or white Hailstone.
Cherry Belle Radish crops develop small red bulbs with edible green leaves and white flesh. As a member of the Brassicaceae family, related to cabbage and mustard plants, add crisp flavor and mild spice to salads with slices of cherry-red radishes!
Resists pithiness found in so many other radishes.
Tops grow 3-4's and can be used in salads when small.
Harvesting Cherry Belle Radish
Many varieties of spring radish are ready to harvest in less than a month from sowing. Using a gardening fork, harvest as roots begin to show 1-2" diameter above the soil. Sample one plant to determine if the rest of the crop is ready. Harvest radish promptly because roots will quickly spoil in the ground from heat and maturity. Some varieties of radish greens are edible and often used in pestos, salads, and sautes.
