    Radish, Blauer Winter (Organic)

    5 out of 5
    $3.50
    Raphanus sativus. 60-80 days.

    Blauer Winter is a storage radish with bright violet skin & white flesh. Mild radish flavor is good raw or cooked. Uncommon in the US but a favorite winter staple in Germany. Keeps well in the root cellar or in the field all winter here in Oregon, as long as the mice don’t find them. Sow in mid-summer for harvest fall through winter. Elongated, conical roots are 3” wide & 6-8” long. Great for kimchi. Seed collected by The Seed Ambassadors Project from the Swiss biodynamic seed company, Sativa Rheinau. Aka, Hild’s Blauer Herbst und Winter.

  • Okhura Winter Queen Dikon Radish
    NEW!

    Radish, Okhura Winter Queen Daikon (Organic)

    $3.50
    Raphanus sativus. 40-60 days.

    Classic stump-rooted daikon style radish with mild flavor. White, cylindrical roots can grow to 5 lbs and 16” long but are best when harvested smaller. Excellent pickled, shredded on salad, or added to soups or stir-fry. Excellent storage crop, in the eld or root cellar. Many daikon varieties hold a lot of their root above ground; Okhura Winter Queen keeps the above-ground portion small, contributing to increased winter hardiness. In addition to being a tasty and nutritious vegetable, daikons are also frequently grown as a forage and fodder crop, and as a cover crop to break through soil hard pan. Best for any use when fall-planted. We thank Peace Seeds for introducing us to this variety.

  • Pink Beauty Radish

    Radish, Pink Beauty (Organic)

    $3.50
    Raphanus sativus. Pink Bunching. 27 days.

    Pink Beauty is all you could ever want in a bunching radish. Round to slightly oval, crisp roots are bright pink & not too spicy. We are not normally impressed with bunching radishes, but these are just darn good. An excellent market farm variety, praised as being better than many hybrids & we agree. Tops are strong for bunching, roots resist cracking. Best when succession planted in spring & fall, as radishes get spicier & have more pest pressures in the heat.
