Small, perfectly round and pleasingly plump, the Philadelphia White Box radish is a Landreth Original. Cleverly disguised to resemble a spring turnip, highly adaptable to small gardens and containers, anywhere there is a patch of sun. Direct sow a row of seed in the garden in spring and fall for a quick growing radish that is best fresh from the garden.
Plant Information
Introduced in 1938, the Philadelphia White Box radish variety is one of the quickest growing you'll find, and the "box" part of its name refers to its ability to grow well in boxed beds and containers. It can be planted very early in the spring, even before frost threats have ended, and it's a great candidate for repeat sowings that will give you generous, successive crops well into the fall. Philadelphia White Box winter radishes are extremely quick to grow and will be ready in just 30 days. The pristine white radishes will be perfectly round and pleasingly plump (about an inch in diameter) when mature, with a wonderfully crisp texture and sweetly spicy flavor.
