Long and slender like a carrot, China Rose radishes are anything but ordinary! Visually appealing as well as crisp and deliciously peppery, they're a cold-weather crop but not frost tolerant. Plant in late spring for summer yields; again in late summer for a fall crop and winter storage. Quick and easy grower! 50-60 days.
Plant Information
Introduced around the 1950s, the China Rose variety is a beautiful winter radish that's named for its country of origin and its smooth, rose-colored skin. It's "winter" classification means it's ideal for planting late in the summer for a fall harvest and winter storage, but it can also be planted in late spring after any threat of frost for a bountiful, mid-summer crop. Given its shorter growing season, it's fantastic that it grows so quickly and easily. Seedlings emerge in as little as 4 days with young radishes ready for picking in about 25 days. Fully mature radishes, ready in about 55 days, will be 6-8 inches in length and a uniform 2 inches in diameter. Their flesh is white with a peppery sweet flavor that's perfect for adding some zing to all your summer salads, sauteed solo as a side dish or as part of a stir-fry, or even pickled. China Rose radishes store very well over the winter for continuous use.
