Radish French Breakfast Vegetable Seeds (Raphanus sativus) 200+Seeds
Radish French Breakfast- Introduced before 1885, this variety was a favorite among French market gardeners, who considered it both attractive and tasty. Today, the 'French Breakfast' is still considered a first-rate radish. French Breakfast is a solid, sweet, cylindrical shaped radish that sports crimson shoulders and a white tip. It is quick-growing, with crisp, tender roots and a sweet mild flavour. It is oblong (rather than round) and measures about 5cm (2in) long. Like many other radishes, 'French Breakfasts' grow quickly. They are ready to eat in just 20 or 30 days. R adish is a cool-season, fast-maturing, easy-to-grow vegetable. Garden radishes can be grown wherever there is sun and moist, fertile soil, even on the smallest city lot. The variety French Breakfast is suitable for planting from spring through to autumn. It holds up and grows better than most early types in summer heat if water is supplied regularly. An excellent all-purpose variety for successional sowing from late spring, for harvest in early summer, right the way through to autumn. A 'must' in every garden, particularly as a row of radishes can be squeezed in as a 'catch crop' between slower growing vegetables. It can also be planted in late winter in a protected cold frame, window box or container in the house or on the patio.
