Radish, Rudi (Organic)

Raphanus sativus. Red Bunching. 26 days.

A very high quality classic red bunching radish. Globe shaped with bright white flesh. Refreshingly crisp and quite tasty. Uniform, quick to mature, and holds well much longer in the field than most open pollinated bunching radishes. Rudi was bred by Enza Zaden, the highly regarded Dutch seed company, before they began focusing entirely on hybrids and patented seed.

Seed produced by Avoca Seed in Corvallis, Oregon.

As required by the Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Washington Crucifer Quarantine, all Brassica family seed lots have been tested and found negative for blackleg (Phoma lingam) by an approved, certified lab.

Geographical Origin

Direct sow ¼” deep, March through September in rows that are 1’ apart. Germination in 5-7 days. Thin to 1” by eating young plants. For mild flavor and to avoid pithiness in bunching radishes, eat before they reach 2” across. Large rooted radish types can be eaten at any size.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from 20 or more plants (to avoid inbreeding) in the second year when seeds have dried down, usually in July. Cut seed heads, place on tarp, let dry a few more days, then dance to free seed. Collect seeds and winnow to clean. Isolate from other Raphanus sativus by 1 mile.
