Minowase, organic seeds
Raphanus sativus var. longipinnatus
The roots are completely white and very uniform about 40 cm long and 5 cm thick with crispy, mild flesh. Minowase can be sown very early in greenhouses for an early summer harvest, but direct sowing should wait until after mid July, because of the risk of blooming. The roots grow quickly and yield a fine, storable crop and fresh radishes for several months. It can take some frost in autumn but must thaw out completely before harvest. A portion contains about 200 seeds.
