A pinky-red stemmed F1 leaf radish with a lovely radish flavour. Fast growing, upright and hairless. Leaves are green and lobed. The colour, texture, shape and flavour adds interest to babyleaf salad mixes

Grows well under glass. Suited to micro and baby leaf.

This oriental brassica is both fast growing and highly productive if given the right conditions. It requires an open situation with fertile, well-drained, moisture-retentive soil (pH 6.5 or 5.8 on peaty soils). Being fast-growing the soil must be rich in organic matter and high in nitrogen.

It is susceptible to excessive salt concentrations, and never does well in poor, dry soil. Being generally shallow-rooted, water is important so water little and often.

Radish F1 Red Stemmed is very temperature-sensitive, especially in relation to bolting, but improved F1 cultivars and crop management should minimise this risk.

Temperature during propagation should be 18oC min., then when planting out in modules at the 2-3 leaf stage, a min. of 7oC is required. The crop can be stored in a cold store at 1oC and 90-95% R.H. for 2-3 weeks.

Cultural Instructions Sow from June Minimum germination temperature is 18oC, with an optimum of 20-25oC. Sow into blocks or modules - do not transplant bare-root seedlings.

Germination should take about 7-12 days. Plant up the young plants at approx 30cm within and 30-40cm between rows.

The Babyleaf can be harvest in 30-35 days main crop matures around 8-10 weeks after sowing.

Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
