Radish - Alta Globe

Notes: Bright red round with medium to tall tops. Makes a great center row. This heritage radish can be planted to discourage cucumber beetle, squash bug, and stink bug. Radish seed and its greens are also a delicious addition to your salads. Let a few in your patch bloom and then go to seed. You can eat the pods while green and they still have that same great radish taste or you can let the seeds ripen up and add them to your salad as a tasty garnish.

Instructions: Direct seed with light cover as soon as the earth can be worked at 5 to 10mm deep. Radishes like cooler weather conditions so it is advisable to provide some shade in hotter months to prevent bolting. Apply mulch to keep the soil cool for the best results

Habitat: Cool, nutrient-rich soil that remains moist, not wet, will ensure less bolting. Hill up around the bases once the bulb starts to form to Protect radish from the hot afternoon sun and encourage a larger root bulb. Best grown in early Spring and Fall plantings.

Medicinal: Radishes and their greens are a great source of vitamin C, folic acid and potassium. They are known for their antiseptic, anti-arthritic and anti-oxidant qualities. Radishes are great for the prevention of a sore throat, fever reduction and assisting with conditions such as bronchitis or asthma. Radishes also increase the production of bile, assisting in maintaining a healthy liver and gallbladder.
