- These radishes are fast and easy to grow with a blunt and oblong shape however, they do not store well.
Raphanus sativus. (23 days) French Breakfast radish was first mentioned by B.K. Bliss and son of New York in 1870. It kind of reminds me of one of those bullet Popsicles I used to get when I was a kid because of its cool red and white colors. French Breakfast is an oblong radish that grows 1 1/2 to 2 inches, scarlet up top in color with a bright white tip. Sweet, tender and mild. Perfect for salads.
