Raphanus sativus ‘Easter Egg’
This year surprise the Easter Bunny with some crispy, crunchy radishes. These red, pink, purple, violet, and white radishes are a great way to perk up the salad.
Plant the seeds right in the garden. Radish seeds do best in cool weather, just like their cousins, cabbage and broccoli so start them 3-4 weeks before the last frost in Spring or late in the fall. Sow radish seeds 1/2 inch deep and two inches apart. You’ll see your new plants in a few days and in just 30 days your garden will be in the pink, with pink radishes that is.
