Perhaps the fastest growing radish! Enjoy harvesting radishes within just weeks from sowing. Bright scarlet red contrasts well with pure white tips. Long and slim and with a satisfying crunch, French Breakfast is easy to prepare in the kitchen when slicing to add in salads.

With a great texture French Breakfast is recognised by the Royal Horticultural Society as a particularly good radish for home-growing. Because of the quick results – just around four weeks from sowing to harvesting- we recommend you keep sowing throughout the summer season for a continual supply.

French Breakfast takes up little space, is suitable for growing in containers and a good crop to try if you’re new to home-growing on account of the fast results.

 

Sowing & Growing: Sow radishes thinly outdoors in drills 15cm apart, thinning the seedlings to 3cm apart within the row soon after emergence, watering ground well before and after seed emergence.

Birds are often a nuisance so protect the crop. Keep the weeds at bay and keep ground moist otherwise roots can become woody and peppery. Radishes like fertile moist soil, with regular watering in dry periods to keep the soil moist for rapid growth.

Harvest: Summer varieties are ready for harvest when they are the diameter of a 10p piece. It is best to lift them in November and store in the same way same as carrots.

Storage: Store in plastic bags or containers in the refrigerator.

Winter Storage Radishes: Sow 5-10 weeks before first fall frost. Thin to wider spacing (4-6 in. apart) than regular radishes. Harvest before temperatures drop below 20 degrees F. Trimmed roots can store 2-3 months in the refrigerator or root cellar. These radishes are daylength-sensitive and should not be sown in spring.
