French Breakfast Radish Seeds

[28 days] The French Breakfast radish has been around over 100 years and performs wonderfully in just about any cool weather conditions. In fact, it’s hard to get it wrong with these superb little radishes. They germinate easily and watered adequately, do quite well in just about any soil. Their oblong roots are startlingly scarlet, tapering off to white at the ends, and the flesh is crisp and mildly spicy when young.

French Breakfast radishes are fantastic in salads or eaten raw with butter and salt. They’re also great grilled or oven roasted, both of which bring out its subtly sweet, nutty flavour. They also make an attractive garnish. Grows best in cool weather and planted in a sunny location.
