RD698A - Rivoli Coated
Rivoli radish is an AAS award winner that is prized for its uniformity of colour, size, and growth rate. The roots are evenly coloured bright red all over and very round. The smooth, dense flesh is crisp with a notably bright flavour. Harvest the roots when they are 4cm (1½") in diameter, or let them grow a bit bigger - they won't become woody. The upright, healthy looking leaves make the bunched radishes highly marketable for growers. For home gardeners, this radish works in larger patio containers, raised beds, or right in the vegetable row.
These seeds are coated with an inert, organically certified layer which helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.

How To Grow
Time your radish plantings a week apart for a longer harvest period. The secret to growing a great radish is to plant when the weather is cool, to not plant too close together and to harvest promptly before the roots get woody and bitter. Every part of the radish is edible. If you leave some of your radishes to go to seed you’ll find the pods before seed set are tender and juicy with a wonderfully sharp flavour that is excellent in stir-fries and soups. If you harvest the seeds before they dry they have a taste and texture reminiscent of caviar. Imagine the fresh seeds lightly sautéed with garlic and thyme on a bed of radish leaves. A gourmet delight! Follow along with this handy How to Grow Radishes from seed Guide and crunchy salad delights.
